comment How to type 0/(zero slash)?
-1 you should describe what is happening when you try it, and even include a screenshot of what is happening,. Your title is very poor as it really doesn't state your difficulty at all. Like asking "how do I cross the road" and not stating what problem you are having doing so.

comment how to change button click event using code
@DanielB As I said, "I'm not suggesting that somebody shoudln't indent" And I said "It's not convention and it wouldn't be recommended" And I never suggested that such a thing would "fly" in the workplace or even would be fine in a hobby. Please re-read my comment.

comment how to change button click event using code
This line looks really odd "Button1.Click -= Button1_Click;" when done without the Button1_Click method. If you are really asking how to change the button click event to something else when a button is clicked then you should amend your title to make it clearer that's what you're asking 'cos that's a bit more interesting than just how to change a button click event using code (which could be done at any point not just when a button is clicked).

comment how to change button click event using code
@DanielB i'm not suggesting that somebody shoudln't indent, but when a method has only one line, it's really not that unreadable if if the line isn't indented. And when 2 similar statements that are very simple are on one line, again, far from unreadable. And when a method has nothing in its body and the { } are on the same line with the header, again that is far from unreadable. It's not convention and it wouldn't be recommended but to say it's "virtually impossible to spot errors" is really far from reality.

comment Unable to access boot menu
you said yourself it's a UEFI so why do you keep saying BIOS?

comment Unable to access boot menu
no idea but i'm curious, did it used to say press F2 or press F12, but now not? also you should know that you can hold the key rather than tap it, but probably won't help. And tihs probably won't help but i guess you could try holding the power button to make sure it is shutting down fully.. or try removing the battery too. I've heard of win8 not shutting down completely and people think they then can't access the boot menu.. but probably won't help in your case. Maybe it's possible to downgrade the UEFI

comment How do I connect to a locally run http server?
if a firewall is on a computer itself i'm not sure that it'd even deal with your external address at all, it'd certainly control access regarding your internal addresses. Also check what IP the server is bound to e.g. netstat -aon at cmd. See if it says 0.0.0.0 or 192.168.1.86 or 127.0.0.1 before the :8000 'cos if it is bound to 127.0.0.1 then that would be the first cause of you only being able to connect from 127.0.0.1 If it's boudn to an 192 address it means it will allow your whole internal network,and if it's bound to 0.0.0.0 it'll allow any. After that a firewall might restrict.

if you know for sure something is not relevant then don't mention it, you should be stating information related to troubleshooting, not telling a story.

comment Hdd(s) not recognized after clean win7 install
what on earth do you mean.. so you go to the BIOS to check the temps and then it says aha now you did that i'm not going to recognize your hard drives, but if you go to the bios and don't change anything and look at the temps then it does? that makes no sense at all

-1 "after you adjusted the settings and restart my computer doesn't recognize any hdd" <-- you should state what the setting is, and what happens when you change it back and restart

comment What does Bytes In / Out mean?
I agree that upstream and downstream.. are equivalent to out and in, and to bytes transmitted and bytes received. respectively. But is it really equivalent to upload and download? If you upload a file to an FTP server, there is two way traffic,, it's not all out.

comment What does Bytes In / Out mean?
re where you wrote , "Which of those you consider to be "upload" and which to be "download" depends on your view of your system - i.e. whether it is "up" or "down" from what that interface is connected to." <------ isn't it the case that the internet is considered downstream and from the internet towards your host is considered upstream?
