Well, yes. Which is why the "MiB" standard came along "Mega-Binary-Byte"
that way folks could be certain what was being talked about.

Well, despite what "parted" claims, this drive looks misaligned.
The gap before the first partition is only 512 bytes; guess I know what
I am doing at lunch time. Strange thing is, the second partition appears
to be fine.
Question is, why on Earth did I have to connect it to a Windows PC in
order to get accurate partition information? Eww.
