Summary0000407: raise the 2048mb filesize limit
DescriptionLately my notifies open in their usual pop-up window but they are center-alligned as if their window was maximized. So, I can't read them unless I maximize the pop-up window every time it appears.

allowing 32bit instead of the 31bits a signed 32-bit integer provides would be enough. 4096 instead of 2048 MB should be enough for any insane encode out there.

also see:


as this was pushed off this far already going the additional step further wouldn't hurt.
Additional InformationExp:
the size is too large for a 32bit integer value.
(`the size' = 2,470,139,904)

This will actually fit quite comfortably in 32 bits, but not the 31 bits that a signed 32-bit integer provides; are unsigned types not an option?
In Perl, everything is a scalar. Strings, floats, integers - all the same. You can read a number of any length into such a scalar, but only as a string. As soon as you do arithmetic operations with the scalar, it's converted to a signed int or double value.
right now I do some arithmetics in the size handling though (i.e. to insert the dots before displaying a size value anywhere). I could probably do that with string operations too. However, I am not sure what perl will do on other arithmetic checks which i will still need. (i.e. < and >)
I think Math.BigInt (or Math.BigFloat) package will be enough for this purpose. All operations are covered, maybe conversion BigInt -> string (to write to DB or display) may be improved.

fyi currently 3 files in anidb would need this

149944, 176710, 217434

but do we really need this?
it just seems like a waste of storage, memory, cpu power and effort to convert everything to unsigned int or int64 just for a hand full of files.

for the mom no. i'm was just stickign everything that was reported in the forum on the tracker. like i said in the second message. 3(!) files would need that our of 200k. until a significant number would use them i don't think it is needed

it still is soemwhat silly to use signed integer here though. i mean negative size? o_O

"Lately my notifies open in their usual pop-up window but they are center-alligned as if their window was maximized. So, I can't read them unless I maximize the pop-up window every time it appears." <- wrong copy&paste ? @ description

anyway, I guess the additional 4 byte in db storage size won't really matter. so it's all up to how well we can handle signed 64bit integers in perl.
haven't looked into that yet.

you are again going for signed integer? now not like it really matters if it's 63 or 64 bit, but negative filesize? oO

2 more I have seen:

FileID: 314031, 314042 (GITS Innocence Bluerayrip)
with its actual size about 4GB
