But at least pictures are
generally recognized as worth a thousand words (grin, I
couldn't resist that).
LOL, an ASCII character is eight bytes and
in the transcribing industry, a word is generally five
characters, so the break even point is at 39.0625Mb. ;)
Around here an ASCII character is eight *bits*
byte. A thousand 5-character words separated by spaces is 1000
* 6 equals 6000 bytes. You can do logos and simple line
drawings in 6KB but not much else.
(Ignoring the fact that
US-ASCII is only defined for 0-127 and sometimes has been
represented with 7 bits, not 8.)
Oops, yes, off by a factor of eight.
