What is LBA?

I have read the acronym LBA several times in this Forum, but I do not understand what it stand for. I searched the Wikipedia and found the description below, still do not understand how it applies to Pentax cameras. I appreciate your enlightment.


========
LBA is Logical Block Addressing.
Early PC hard drives were supported by the PC BIOS using Cylinder/Head/Sector addressing.
To read or write from a specific sector on the disk, you specified the sector in terms of its cylinder number, its head number, and its sector number.
LBA adressing uses just one number. In LBA addressing, the first sector on the disk is sector zero and all sectors on the disk are simply incremented from there.

Hold your mouse pointer over LBA for a few seconds.

Yeah, if you don't know what an acronym stands for on this forum, if there is a dotted underline under the word, such as LBA or WR, if you hold your mouse over it the definition will pop up!

Mine security settings (at work) apparently dont show the dotted line. I was wondering why LBA was giving a mouse over but some other abbrv. were not.

Haha, but it's a good thing too, with a lot of lenses you can join the Single Challenges for a long time.

Is anyone actually precluded from participating multiple months with the same lens though?

I didn't think so
I have enough to get me through more than a year though so I'm not worried (18 months worth at the moment, but before i ever get through 18 months there will be others, and if i do finally use them all then i can always participate unofficially with my other cams and hit another 10 month with ilc of some sort and add a couple more for fixed lenses

it's a sickness i know
