thanks DaLight, that's exactly the definition i had shown the people who are in favour of using 1000 instead of 1024 as conversion unit. i had a hard time convincing them that in matters of delays, bit rates, speeds, etc, in networking, we can only arrive at correct results using 1024 and 1000 will only give us approximate, and as the values get multiplied or divided against one another, the level of inaccuracy increases by using 1000 instead of 1024
