Floppy disk are even worse than HDD: "1.44 MB" is 1.44*1024*1000.

And, even if I understand 1024 is "commonly used" I have BIG problems
saying that hard drive manufacturers are LYING, when if fact they're
following international standards.

IMHO we either follow them or not, or else it would be as good to use
gallons instead of liters... (errr! :P)

Not a big deal, anyway, I just wanted to check the consensus regarding
that little string.
