wow I suck at math. Let me count the ways...

For the longest time(my career as a sysadmin) if I would see a byte count in gigabyte/terabyte length, I would whip out `bc -l` in a terminal and run /1024/1024/1024. I do this because long'ish strings(to me) mess up my brain and can't decipher the number of characters there. Dyslexia maybe?

Today my braing decided to wake up and think "what about powers?". so for example, I have this string which is the size of last nights complete backup of a work webserver
punch in to bc (cli calculator on linux/unix)
and you get

So now you know how bad I suck at math, Powers may not even be the correct terminology.
