archive is NOT internationalized but xarchiver is latest stable version and PET already. May I suggest to replace archive by archiver?

"L18L, Yes, ttuuxxx was very keen on Xarchiver. I had a fondness for Xarchive, and resisted his urging that I change to using Xarchiver. Well, maybe the time has come to change. Xarchive seems to be a dead project anyway, no development on it for some time. I have written it down in my "high priority" to-do list (a piece of paper on my desk).

"jmsm, Yeah, but what are you actually testing with Shields Up? Many people use it, but don't realise that it is NOT testing their PC. For the old days of dialup, fine. But these days most people are going through some kind of intermediary, such as a router/modem, and it is that that is the frontend to the Internet and what Shields Up is measuring.
