Wussisname that's running this has said he's counting characters in the
sense of "wc -c", so it's actually physical bytes that are counted.

Several people have matched the 120 byte working example; perhaps that
will prove to be the limit?

I look on the events of November and December 2000 in my own country,
and I reflect on what a truly science-fictional experience it is
to be living under an authentically illegitimate American government,
born of force and fraud.  -- Patrick Nielsen Hayden (in Starlight 3)
