Since the Si system was only extended in 1991 to include the Yotta- prefix, I'm sure it will be extended again once someone finds a need!



...you mean like store Bill Gates bank account total, or something like that. :D


If it was easy, everybody would be doing it!;)

Easy there. I let this one go, knowing it didn't really store everything, but that it would be a bit fun and I'd never heard of a YB. Heck, I can only barely conceive of a TB since I can see that much storage and can guess what a PB is, but no real grasp of an EB.

Again, as pointed out, this is partially entertainment, and partially to get you to think or learn something new. It's not necessarily supposed to be a factual quiz of everything in BOL. Not all questions will always have to do with SQL Server, though we try to get them in the general area.

If you think it's easy to write un-"poorly worded" questions, please submit your own. Not as easy as you might think without putting in trivial ones.

I have awarded back points, and changed the answer to only show 2 as correct.

I clicked the correct answer and it still told me I was wrong. The stats are a little messed up as well.

"Beliefs" get in the way of learning.

Definition of EB -

EB - Europa Barbarorum - excellent historically accurate mod for SEGA/The Creative Assembly's most awsome game Rome Total War. :D

EB (Exabyte) is easy. It's a tape's worth of storage, as in "we're going to have problems when the nightly backup exceeds an Exabyte"! :D

(For those who miss the joke... Exabyte Corporation make tape drives...)

How is that funny?

Is that not the truth? ;)

Like the one told to me by an accountant;

"There are three types of accountant in this world, those who can count and those who can't" :D

--Shaun

Come now, everyone knows there are 10 types of people in the world: those who count in binary and those who don't.

No, there is only one type of person in the world: those who count.

Except of course for Democrat primary voters in MI and FL.

Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yottabyte) would have you believe that all four answers are correct, using base 2 or 10.

The quoted reference in the answer (http://en.linuxreviews.org/Yottabyte) would have you believe that only two answers are correct, using base 10.

Which are we to believe?

That is easy! Linux, in a SQL Server discussion group, is heresy! ;)

Therefore, Wikipedia, for all its faults, is the better source!
