Such a familiar feeling. This was my day too. Let's try to keep strong! 😀

@feoh Do it! Just a little Quality of Life mod, eh? How could it hurt... 😂

It makes me really curious about how have Signal has orchestrated their infra. I mean, certainly it's a success to be able to scale up in that time with an order of magnitude increase in demand.

@brion good question! I wonder if the implementation back in the days would care to ask for a previous disk until the start of the central directory record was found. 1.44 MB ought to be enough for any number of files! ;D

Makes me wonder if the multi-volume format was ever even an idea at the time the ZIP file format was designed. Or was there a good design reason the directory record would be at the end? Hard to imagine!
