solareagle writes: Pennsylvania resident Chris Reynolds got quite a shock when he opened his most recent PayPal statement — it said he had a $92,233,720,368,547,800 balance in his account. "I'm just feeling like a million bucks," Reynolds told the [Philadelphia] Daily News yesterday. "At first I thought that I owed quadrillions. It was quite a big surprise." When asked what he would do with the money, he said, "I would pay the national debt down first. Then I would buy the Phillies, if I could get a great price." The Daily News speculates that the astronomical balance may be related to PayPal's new Galactic initiative, announced last month, to expand its business beyond Earth.
The relative importance of files depends on their cost in terms of the
human effort needed to regenerate them.
