Public sector. Guy wants to upload a PDF file into our system that exceeds our file size upload limit by a factor of more than 10. The PDF contains a lot of pictures.

His idea: print the hundreds of pages of the PDF on paper in b/w and scan it because b/w takes less space then colored pictures.

I am perplexed. He asked first though, so we could prevent the actual printing.

    It's always amazing to follow the thought process of such organism. While not complex, it sure is a wonder of this world.

    It is kind of interesting to know that he knows b/w takes less space than colored.

    I'm not sure if I'm impressed or angered by the thought process here...

    At least he was trying to think about the problem, apply some logic and propose a solution.
