Dude I hate conversions between bits and bytes. I tangle myself up every time.

I still hate conversions. They're dumb. Should just stick with a unified system. Just bits or just bytes. I mean, I can do them, I just rather not. One thing I can't complain about though, is that they're much better than the English system. I hate converting between that. So I just stick with metric.
