Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thanks for your edits to help clean up spelling on various articles. You may want to check out the manual of style section on spelling if you have any questions, particularly in case you're wondering whether British or American English should be used. Most of the time, there's no need to "fix" alternate spellings ("organise" to "organize" or whatnot) unless the usage is inconsistent with the spelling used in the rest of the article.

One further note: on DVD, you changed "gibibyte" to "gigabyte"; those are actually two different, distinct units of measurement. The prefix "gibi" is not in very widespread usage, but it is an IEC standard designation used when the value 230 is meant specifically, in order to distinguish it from the SI prefix "giga", which may mean 230, but more often means 109. Check out the binary prefix article for more on this.

Once again, welcome! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. -- Wapcaplet 21:47, 14 Jul 2004 (UTC)
