CainSyris has been putting way too much thought into this situation.

Either that or he's on a bad acid trip

Maybe it's the hype or my own expectations but it wouldn't surprize me if the final HL2 build weighs in at 2.5-3GB. Considering optized code is something that's relatively foreign in the software industry (hell, something as simple as an placeholder can be missed more often that not and it's much easier to just kick out with fatter harddrive capacities), it's just seems that the source code would be much larger than 1.5 GBs.

The monkey had a point. The rar expands, eventually, to about 3GB. So you were right on the money psy.
