I can't quite understand how _you_ have missed that this thread is actually 
about your refusal to concede that only dinosaur geeks want to keep KB and 
MB to show powers of 2.  You're 100% right that the base2 convention is 
faulty - and have utterly failed to show any reason why we shouldn't correct 
the fault.  It's _not_ however true that it was ever universally used - and 
that's why its faulty.
