        1.  The size of something {infinite}.
        Using the word in the context of sets is sloppy, since
        different {infinite set}s aren't necessarily the same size
        {cardinality} as each other.
        See also {aleph 0}
        2.  The largest value that can be represented in
        a particular type of variable ({register}, memory location,
        data type, whatever).
        See also {minus infinity}.
