Really? I love the use of the F word, it makes you sound so much more intelligent. "I" am not being stubborn, I am having a discussion. KiB, MiB, GiB are made by marketing people who think consumers are stupid, they server no usefull purpose, there was never a reason to differentiate between KB and KiB in the first place.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
There is no confusion, Bytes and Bits have nothing to do with the SI(measurement of length,volume,mass). They are a specific interger value(an unknown 1 or 0), nothing scientific about them.
The prefixes are different already, there is no centibyte for millibyte, it's not really a scientific measurement to begin with.
So there is no problem with using them in the original context (2^10....)
And no logical reason whatsoever for the terms (KiB,MiB,GiB) to have been created in the first place
Since Wikiapedia limits the amount of content, a lot of people are moving their edits to a topic specific wiki at other open wikis like wikia.com
"Wikia.com" for all the stuff you can't put on Wikipedia. - not an advert for them it's just true.
If you are going to make a mediawiki site use Wikia.com, all of the extra stuff that "doesn't belong" on wikipedia ends up there.
these are available:
and any pagesyou have already made can be easily imported.
