    I was messing about with a calculator today and a random pixel generator site and realised just how big this image archive is.

    If you were to massively reduce the resolution down to just 8 pixels x 8 pixels and 2 colours (eg black and white) at a rate of 6 images per second it would take 100 billion years to view every combination of images.

    This image archive has a vastly bigger resolution and colours pallete so this just shows how ridiculous in size it must be…

    yea, that’s more or less accurate.
