so just because the rules of programming says .txt and .mrc are the same speed, that means it must be true?

Well... generally if something is a physical or logical rule then yes, it is true. But like I said, it's possible that .mrc is slower than .txt - it simply defies all logic if it does.

Could people just let up on the angry rant-posts? I can see this thread getting deleted very soon if people keep on posting as they are.

Spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and stupid comments are intentional.
