You Owe Me Two Hours, Census Bureau

Why in the world would you choose to compress using "Compression 98?"

The algorithm, also known as PPMd, was written by Dmitry Shkarin, a guy in Russia. Do they not know that in Soviet Russia, algorithm compress YOU!

But seriously, Winzip is basically the only zip utility that can handle it

And why for that one rdp_2008_06077_tabblock10.zip (and its state-level equivalent, rdp_2008_06_tabblock10.zip);

Took me nearly two hours to get around the limited account privileges on the only
Windows machine I have access to so I could install Winzip and unzip.
