You're right, most people don't care about the difference between MB or Mb, or mB or mb for the sake of your example. Though similar to you, I care. You made no mistake and I made no comment on a mistake other then the authors, you saw the same pre-edit mistake I did. I was merely commenting on the authors poor usage of abbreviation in your quote, I'll be more specific in the future : )The uneducated dick part was rather silly though. Obviously you wouldn't expect 7GB or even an 800MB patch. I'll assume your questions toward the author was just you being nice and letting him know the typo was there instead of you being ignorant.As for Mensrea, ttvp pretty much said it. A millibit does not exist in anything other than theory. Heh, Imagine trying to decompress something that small... That's a joke...Mb would stand for Megabit. The problem I have with seeing something labeled "mb" when referring to something taking up space, is that "mb"(megabit) is more commonly used for transfer rates and networking, but even that is incorrect and is another topic in itself.oh well, servers are back up anyways.
