>the term "BYTE"?
Werner Buchholz, a brilliant geek, who invented Fidonet (named
after his dog) also coined the term "byte." It actually came
from "bite" extended from "bit." Now, so it is told, that Fido
"bit" a man one day and when Werner got home he asked Fido, "Did
you actually bite a man today?" Of course Fido claimed innocence.
Anyway, that night Buchholz was geek'n away on inventing what is
now known as the "byte" and wondering what to call it. So, once
again, with Fido in mind, he named the 8 bit word (or 2 nibbles,
or 4 crumbs if you wish), a "byte" offsetting it from "bite." To
this very day we still do not know if Fido took a nibble or a
bite out of the man, or even met the man at all.
Now, for $25,000.00 is that true or false (remember the game show?) :)

best to just burn a CD if you have the hardware. You can always
buy a CD from me for $10.00. Here's the blah, blah, blah from
NoteTab's PasteBack feature. (I can do PayPal or snail mail
orders if it is just for the CD. Otherwise, see my affiliate
The CD-ROMs for our products that have lots of extras on them
including: very useful freeware and shareware, extra HTML help for
beginners, an excellent Clip writing tutorial, and other short
tutorials... You can get more than one registered program on the
same CD at no extra charge, even if you already registered the
products; see "cd-info.htm" and "onthiscd.htm" below for details
and the contents of the CDs. (http://www.fookes.us)
The NoteTabbers Assistant Page (http://www.notetab.net) is one of
my personal web sites loaded with free useful Libraries and Clips.
It is well worth the visit in my opinion!-)
