James S. Huggins' Refrigerator Door

Whenever we discuss quantities of data, we tend to do it in the abstract. We speak of a kilobyte, or a megabyte or a gigabyte without really knowing what it represents.

The following table shows various quantities of bytes, in each power of ten. Usually, they are shown with multiples of 2 and 5 also. For example, 1 Kilobyte, 2 Kilobytes, 5 Kilobytes.

All the examples are approximate and are rounded. For example, a computer card has 80 columns. If 50 columns contain data on a card, then two cards will be 100 bytes. Also, a 3-1/2 inch diskette can contain 1.4 Megabytes. Showing it as 1 Megabyte reflects both (a) the diskette not typically being filled and (b) rounding. Finally, a CD-ROM can hold more than 500 Megabytes. However, it is listed at that level as "typical" and as the closest match.

Bytes (8 bits)

    0.1 bytes: A single yes/no decision  (actually 0.125 bytes, but I rounded)
    1 byte: One character
    2 bytes:
    5 bytes
    10 bytes: One word (a word of language, not a computer word)
    20 bytes:
    50 bytes:
    100 bytes: Telegram; two punched computer (Hollerith) cards
    200 bytes:
    500 bytes:

     1,024 bytes; 210;
     approx. 1,000 or 10 3

    1 Kilobyte: Joke; (very) short story
    2 Kilobytes: Typewritten page
    10 Kilobytes: Page out of an encyclopedia
    20 Kilobytes:
    50 Kilobytes: Image of a document page, compressed
    100 Kilobytes: Photograph, low-resolution
    200 Kilobytes: Two boxes (4000) punched computer (Hollerith) cards
    500 Kilobytes: Five boxes, one case (10,000 of punched computer (Hollerith) cards

     1,048,576 bytes; 220;
     approx 1,000,000 or 10 6

    1 Megabyte: Small novel; 3-1/2 inch diskette
    2 Megabytes: Photograph, high resolution
    5 Megabytes: Complete works of Shakespeare; 30 seconds of broadcast-quality video
    10 Megabytes: Minute of high-fidelity sound; digital chest X-ray; Box of 3-1/2 inch diskettes
    20 Megabytes: Two boxes of 3-1/2 inch diskettes
    50 Megabytes: Digital mammogram
    100 Megabytes: Yard of books on a shelf; two encyclopedia volumes
    200 Megabytes: Reel of 9-track tape; IBM 3480 cartridge tape
    500 Megabytes: CD-ROM

Is Your Computer Connecting To Websites Without Your Knowledge Score: More about Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF

If you are worried that some programs on your PC are secretly making connections to websites in the background, here's a quick tip that uses a simple DOS command to detect and prevent such suspicious activity:

1. Type cmd in your Windows Run box.

2. Type "netstat -b 5 > activity.txt" and press enter. After say 2 minutes, press Ctrl+C.

3. Type "activity.txt" on the command line to open the log file in notepad (or your default text editor)

netstat -b 5

The file activity.txt will have a log of all process that made a connection to the Internet in the last two minutes. It will also show which process connected to which website in this time. And not just the web browsers (like iexplore.exe or opera.exe), the log will also show your IM clients, download managers, email programs or any software that requires a net connection.

Scroll though the activity.txt file and look for any process names or website addresses that you are not aware of. If you track one , go to the task manager (or Process Explorer) to find the location of the executable on your computer and eliminate it.

Microsoft IPsec Diagnostic Tool
The Microsoft IPsec Diagnostic Tool helps network administrators troubleshoot network-related failures, focusing primarily on Internet Protocol security (IPsec).The tool checks for common network problems on the host machine and, if it finds any problems, it suggests re¬pair commands. The tool also collects IPsec policy information on the system and parses the IPsec logs to try to determine why the failure might have happened. The tool also provides trace collection for virtual private network (VPN) connections, the Network Ac¬cess Protection (NAP) client, Windows Firewall, Group Policy updates, and wireless and system events. The diagnostic report generated by the tool is derived from the system logs collected by the tool during its analysis phase.

How to: Make Your USB Drive into a Digital Swiss Army Knife Score: More about Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF

As any geek can tell you, the smaller and more portable a gadget is, the better that gadget becomes. You can’t get much more portable than USB drives, which can be carried in a pocket, around the neck, or even on a key chain. This, in and of itself, is already a pretty cool and a relatively inexpensive way to carry around a few extra gigs of whatever it is you need to carry around. But there are ways to make your USB drive even more useful, and these processes allow you to take many of the functions of your desktop with you to any computer you might want to use.

You can find numerous programs designed to run specifically from a USB drive. Best of all, almost all these programs are free, so put that Amex back in your wallet. Simply install them on your USB drive and they’re ready to travel with you anywhere. Here’s a list of 55 of the most useful USB programs around.
