    Type the command du following the directory name and hit the enter key. This gives the size of the directory in kilobytes.
    My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive.

    in addition to what trickster said
    du -h will give it in human readable format
    telnet mtrek.game-host.org 1701
