Well basically i just wanted to prove on paper that a database that can be
upto 2Tb in size, would more than suffice for a web application for
recording the companies worklogs, when at present there is only 3
employees and a view to soon becoming 4. Hence why i wanted to figure out
how much data 2Tb can hold in terms of text.

Theres no place like ::1
