Default Bits and PCs - a Computers and Tech Miscellany

We don't seem to have a miscellany thread related to tech although we have miscellaneous other miscellany threads apart from the miscellany thread.

So here it is.

The miscellaneous finding I wanted to post is this:
The http protocol (you know, the one that's the backbone of the web, famous for 404 errors :404: ) has a separate error code for Unavailable For Legal Reasons. The protocol equivalent of "this video is not available in your country".

The error code is 451.

Is this where I complain about how slow my Windows 10 laptop is compared to my Windows 10 Alienware computer?

I think that the main reason why I never adopted Pyhton as a scripting language is that I can never, ever type it correctly (including in this sentence. :( ).

$ pyhton
No command 'pyhton' found, did you mean:
Command 'python' from package 'python-minimal' (main)

Nancy - Nancy by Olivia Jaimes for Apr 17, 2018 | Read Comic Strips at GoComics.com

I think Lisarea is writing this strip now.

Default Re: Bits and PCs - a Computers and Tech Miscellany

I finally bought a PC this year. The last one I bought was in 2000. On that one, at least I had a system software disk to load if my software ate itself.

Now, don't have a clue what to do when my software gets stuffed.
