Binary prefix

Binary prefix About to lose my cred: Yes, I know the difference between a kilobyte and a kilobyte, but I didn’t realize there was a different naming scheme to differentiate between the two. Trigger: I was reading up on ZFS and discovered the exbibyte.

    I meant kilobyte. As in, harddrive companies mean 1000 despite using the unit name for 1024.
