Re: Because as we all know ...

"...office workers use thousands of columns..."

I've noticed that a given company might employ maybe a dozen financial staff. Made me curious about the rough amount of data that they're dealing with on a weekly basis. Is it a flood of data? Not exactly...

Between time sheets (rolled up for the week), a bit of procurement, some invoices, etc. Total information to be processed is certainly more than 1kB, but way less than 100kB. So very roughly 10kB of actual data (pure info). That's per week.

Putting it in this perspective, what the heck are they all doing? This amount of data could be chiseled into granite at that tiny trifling data rate.

It's all very strange.
