comment How can I read compressed .Z file automatically by Mathematica?
Three comments up was a request to incorporate this conversion into Import. The approach suggested doesn't work, with the reasons detailed in the comments. Hence the approach to modify the down values for Import and ImportString. If you don't want to do that, you don't have to. You can just use importLZW and importStringLZW instead.

comment Mathematica error code 0x00000171
Yep, I've been waiting for years to see this thing go away. That is the really old Carbon (pre Mac OS X!) indication that the app isn't paying attention to you because it's busy, which I still see all the time in the front end.

comment Importing large data without using Import
Does someone know how to put a backquote inside backquotes? I can't get just one backquote to show up for Needs["Developer`"] when inside backquotes.
