HEheheheh

CDMcCull - Cean Daniel McCull... (first initial, middle initial, and first six letters of last name, but according to North Dakota, my middle name isn't Daniel - gotta work on getting that fixed - some vital records in Iowa were destroyed in the flood, so I'm waiting for other ways to prove my name change from birth)

Just a little correction ... you listed Kb, Mb, Gb, Tb for kilobyte, megabyte, gigabyte, terabyte. Those B's should be capitalized.

Lowercase 'b' = bit (binary digit) = a 0 or 1; usually used for network speed (100 Mbps, 1 Gbps, etc.) <-- Mbps = megabits per second
Uppercase 'B' = byte = 8 bits; usually used for storage capacity (512 MB, 4 GB, 2 TB, etc.)

Just wanted to clear that up
