    Isn't the instruction of the login-dialog obviously? It's all about Zen. To do something, just do nothing!

    anyone want to bet on whether it'll handle Exabytes, Zettabytes, Yottabytes, Xonabytes, Wekabytes, and Vundabytes as well?
    Shouldn't Trilobytes fit in there somewhere?
    kastein:
    Who gets naming rights on the one after Vundabytes? Following the backwards-alphabet trend, I think it should be named Uberbytes.
    I vote for Godzillabytes.
    All in good time, boys and girls.

    It is not a "retarded meme that came into fashion after the arrest of Josef Fritzl". The joke about the distinction or lack thereof between Australia and Austria is quite a lot older, and it is not a meme; it is reality. I've so far received 3 packages ordered in the USA(2) and Canada(1) which had been routed via Australia.

    Also, for chinese people, Austria could as well be a city. There are at least four cities with more inhabitants than the entire country and ~20 quickly closing the gap.

    Yes, but Monolobytes and Bilobytes need to come first. And some idiot American probably starts using Bilo and Trilo wrong.

    Wow. I could hear the whoosh of that going over your head from here...
    No, that was the sound of an incestual rapist riding a kangaroo to town to get some Apfelstrudel after a hard day of Opal mining.

    Those cars are MINED? :-)

    And New Mexico is a state in the United States of America.

    I tried to mail a package from North Carolina to New Mexico many years ago, and the U.S. Postal Service counter-person pulled out a foreign rate book. I informed him that this was not an international shipment.

    I'm in Australia, and some wag in my town has been ripping letters off postboxes so they spell "Austr..ia Post". Probably the same guy that ripped the S from the "crap metal" bin.

    i'm just glad that i don't have to write a chinese address... that would look like 上海 to me

    [those boxes with numbers that firefox uses for unicode characters]

    I think that writing the number boxes would be easier than writing the chinese anyway. But if you write "Shanghai" or the whole address in English it'll generally get there. (Shanghai is what you wrote there).

    The box (bo) is a Chinese character.

    To say 6 PB is the size of the internet is a bit of understatement...

    If anything, it's saddening to hear that my newly-bought 2TB disk is nowhere close to being sufficient.
