When I programmed Commodore 64 Assembler a KB was 1024 B, nowadays I
call it a KiB, to distinguish between 2^10 and 10^3, see .

I dislike this joke, since senior programmers usually are also senior
electronics technicians, so while not necessarily aware of the kg unit,
at least well aware of the kΩ unit :p.
