Orders of magnitude

June 2nd, 2009 (06:18 pm)

Today I got more RAM for my work desktop. It had 8GB, and that just wasn't enough. (My usual dataset is 12GB.) So a guy from IT came by and put in another 8GB. He then booted it up and waited for the memory check to finish. As I saw it counting the megabytes, and waiting for it to reach 16384MB, I realized that this machine now has as many megs as my first computer had bytes.
