Should likely look at your pillow for starters I'd say, sounds like it might not be supportive enough. Perhaps your mattress too.

Heh... the Creality download for flashing new firmware onto an ender 3 for adding BLTouch functionality to the printer has nested RAR files.....

Open the first and you get the Firmware file + RAR labeled ISP. Extract that and you get a powerpoint file of how to use the ISP burner and a RAR file of the required software.....

As a nested menu kind of guy I appreciate the separate folders, but I don't really think we need rars of rars..... :)

And while we're at it... WTH hasn't Microsoft embedded RAR support into windows along with Zip support? Is it a licensing thing?

Most likely yes.

Speaking of which WTH hasn't Microsoft enabled AES256 zip support? I mean it only came out in like 2003 (Not that I mind WinRar/7z but still)

Since 7zip can do it and is free, I doubt it. I suspect it's just abandoned code on MS's side, probably hasn't been touched since Vista (as it looks it).

With RAR's being proprietary and windows being commercial software I'd assume they'd either have to pay the Russian guy who created RAR's (can't remember his name at the moment), or have to have some kind of free version of windows or risk another lawsuit for potential damages by winrar.

Could be like the United States vs Microsoft lawsuit over the inclusion of IE with windows. I'd imagine that 7zip isn't at risk since it's completely free.
