and a 100Kb /etc/hosts file


Really? A 100 Kelvinbit /etc/hosts file? What's a Kelvinbit? Jesus; proper capitalization is not that hard. Quick recap at a high school level:
K = kelvin
k = kilo
B = byte
b = bit
M = mega
m = milli
s = second
S = siemens

Wow... I'm not the person who typed that 100 "Kb" hosts file, but seriously... is the only thing you can do, checking capitalization? :|

Seriously, that kind of "correction" is just disgusting. And I thought my teachers were bad, who were above me and yet had no idea WTF a kilobyte or megabyte was. :|
