Please explain this in detail. Which part of the implementation of the handling of block is responsible and why whould an implemntation not using block be better?

Personally I am convinced that the problem is that you do not know how many bytes that it takes to render each page. To jump to a specific page you do not have the CPU to render each page to reach this page so you get an error. But what that have to to with 65k blocks I cannot understand.
