    Default Byte question

    I have spent so fucking long trying to figure out what a simple byte is. I don't know why, but I can never grasp the concept of measurement.


    1 byte = any one character, or number?
    I.e.:
    A=1
    B=1
    C=1
    D=1
    E=1
    F=1
    G=1
    H=1
    I=1
    J=1
    K=1
    L=1
    M=1
    N=1
    O=1
    P=1
    Q=1
    R=1
    S=1
    T=1
    U=1
    V=1
    W=1
    X=1
    Y=1
    Z=1
    1=1
    2=1
    3=1
    4=1
    5=1
    6=1
    7=1
    8=1
    9=1

    ? Knowing this would help... <3

    And yes, I know complimentary 2's, so technically 3 bits etc. Don't exist but whatever.

    Here are some examples of basic conversions:

    1 kilobyte =1,024 bytes

    1 megabyte(1024x1024)=1,048,576 bytes

    1 gigabyte(1024x1024x1024)=1,073,741,824 bytes

    etc

    This is because of the fact that computers use base 2 math.

    haha we just learned this in web design. you can also tell how many bytes are in something if you go to notepad and then save it and go to properties and it will tell how many bytes/killobytes there are in the things you wrote.

    Right click any file and go to properties, it always tells you the size and size on disk (in both bytes and the more appropriate measurement).

    No, I understand kilobytes megabytes and terabytes, that there however many bytes, but I fail to understand what a single byte is. I've been trying to do a 06 codetype, but for some reason I've been failing and I'm sure its my byte orientation :P

    You don't realize that I don't understand either of that, read the original post. I know that bits and bytes are the same; I just don't know what they are. This is probably more complicated then it needs to be.
