I recall. But, being a nerd, the proper prefix to that amount of wattage is Giga meaning...oh, where is that exponential key...basically, 10 to the ninth watts or 1.21 billion Watts! I assume since they rarely delt with Gigs in the 80's, the pronunciation wasn't really set and it came out jig instead of gig.
Now that I totally ruined that. Would I like it if Doc said it the other way? Heck NO!!!!
