On the subject of 'terrobytes', the new SI multipliers and dividers caught
me on the hop once too. Maybe the following will help ("**" means "to the
power of"):

Multipliers

kilo k 10**3
mega M 10**6
giga G 10**9
tera T 10**12
peta P 10**15
exa E 10**18
zetta Z 10**21
yotta Y 10**24


Dividers

milli m 10**-3
micro f 10**-6
nano n 10**-9
pico p 10**-12
femto f 10**-15
atto a 10**-18
zepto z 10**-21
yocto y 10**-24


I'd be interested to know what brain thought these up!!

Yotta Best Wishes for the New Year.

Simon North.
