Storage Capacity

I began to wonder one day just how much storage I have in the house, so just for fun, I decided to take a note of everything (and obviously knocked up some more PHP so that I didn't have to keep count any time that I changed things):

So that's over 133GiB of working memory (RAM), over 1912GB of solid state storage and over 18TB of spinning rust (hard drive) storage (over 20TB of storage in total)... just saying, that's all ;-)

So what's the difference between a GB and a GiB?

Well basically...

The SI prefix is generally used in storage terms as it allows manufacturers some flexibility in bad sector marking and SSD manufacturers the extra sectors for wear levelling. It is also very often mis-used as meaning a binary prefix.

The binary prefix is mainy used in digital electronics and more commonly in RAM figures as for every address bit you add to a device, you double its size.
