“Eclecticism, (from Greek eklektikos, “selective”), in philosophy and theology, the practice of selecting doctrines from different systems of thought without adopting the whole parent system for each doctrine.” – Encyclopaedia Britannica.
Noticed that your “Transforming Numbers” for k,m,g,t and b doesn’t actually do the /1024 math like it should. For instance, my disk size is 237 GB (255,413,528,816 bytes), but Desktop Info is showing it as 255 GB. Can this be fixed?
It depends on whether you’re using binary transform (lower case) or decimal transform (upper case). In your case decimal transform will give you 255GB and binary transform will give you 237GB. Hard drive manufacturers generally quote capacity in decimal bytes but you can use binary if you want. The sample config files use decimal transforms for logical drives.
