    Oh, if you’d like to buy just about every disk drive ever made, NSS can handle up to eight "ZetaBytes" where one "ZetaByte" is defined as one million terabytes. (Note that this definition of ZetaBytes only appears one website other than Novell’s. According to all other references, the international standard for prefixes is as follows: Kilo, Mega, Giga, Tera, Peta, Exa, Zetta, and Yotta, respectively, with no mention of Zeta with one "t". This leads me to believe that the correct prefix would be "Exa". Aha, one last Novell standards violation needing eradication, as well as proof that the Web truly is the great black hole of wasted time!)

    I don't quite agree with that website

    Septo = 7 then should be = sep-something or exa-something, instead of sext-something, cuz sexto and Exa = 6

    same goes for Pico or Pento
    which mean 5 or more

    so that table is totally off.

    and anything to the multiple of 0 is ZERO and not 1

    that's the worst math i've seen.

    Do we really need that much disk space?! So games now are going to take 1-2 gigabytes... what next?!

    Or was this intended to be a harmless joke?
