I was just reporting what is written on the "informations techniques" on my Aura. It does mean something in French: méga octets. I tend to forget to translate such acronyms when writing in an English speaking thread. I tend to mix American and British usage too (I read the British do it more and more too). But then this is an international forum. Are there statistics somewhere on users nationalities?

PS: What does ADTGDFG mean? You must be american - I've noticed many new everyday acronyms recently, and some have been difficult to puzzle out.

Well, "Mb" and "Kb" usually mean Megabit and Kilobit. "MB" and "KB" are MegaByte and Kilobyte.

@anacreon: And now that I know "Mo" means Mega Octet, that makes sense. A "byte" is almost always an octet now, but "in the old days", it was dependent on the architecture of the computer.

PDP 10 where (quoting from Wiki)
Quote:
Some aspects of the instruction set are unique, most notably the "byte" instructions, which operated on bit fields of any size from 1 to 36 bits inclusive according to the general definition of a byte as a contiguous sequence of a fixed number of bits.

Believe me, you do not want to see anything in the data returned as that would indicate a major problem with the database.

The two Windows programs are separate items.

One caution is that you should always copy the database to your PC and compact it there. Running vacuum makes a copy of the database during the compact phase and then replaces the original database with that copy. Not a good time to run out of disk space.

All except the articles by some guy named Pournelle, who had the nerve to bash my Epson QX-10 and its Valdocs program.

And let us not forget Kilobaud which Wayne Green founded after Byte was wrestled away from his control.
