Sorry, just my ocd acting up. It's not a convenience, it is because computer stores in binary. So it is literally "kilobytes" b/c it is 2^10 or 1000 "binary bytes" or 1024 bytes.

Sanity is overrated.

Nitromon is a type of Pokemon encountered in the Pokemon Nitrome Version series.

Yeah, also I think you're going to have a field day trying to teach a computer to work in Imperial. I've modded a lot of video games and only one of them was designed to use Imperial, and even then only partially. It's just unnecessarily difficult to use Imperial for any sort of scientific or mathematical purpose. It's perfectly fine for casual use, however. I've been known to measure things in miles and feet myself.

Hypocrisy is only okay if I do it.
