comment Why do SSDs have weird sizes?
The physics (or engineering issues) of how much data you can squeeze onto a given platter have nothing to do with radix 2. In chips, makikng them in radix 2 related sizes makes sense due to how memory is addressed. The number of values a bit can hold has essentially nothing to do with it. The reasons would likely be the same if a memory unit could hold more values. Imagine quantum computing, which may have 3 values, but that would not force addressing to be in powers of 3.

comment Check if a file has been changed
How about using git, and GPG-signing your commits? This will keep SHA-1 hashes of your files, and hash secures the infrastructure of the git repository.
