The terrobyte is an ancient flying lizard. The fossil record indicates
that it became extinct during the paleolithic era. It had a wingspan of
over 12 feet, and the wings were composed primarily of skin stretched
over a bony structure.

A terrabyte, its modern relative, is ten to the twelfth bytes. In the
"Webster's IV" edition of the dictionary, the definition is, "Whoa, hey,
that's a lotta bytes!"

Don't tell Butthead.

Pleasure to be of service.
