HTTP status codes – 1xx Informational

Have you ever met these problems ?

When you visited certain websites, it show you some codes like 404 Not Found, 500 Internal Server Error, 503 Service Unavailable and so on ?

So, what does all those codes mean ?

In the next few days, we will explain it to you what does those codes mean and why it happen. Today we will start with HTTP status codes – 1xx Informational – Request received, continuing process.

This class of status code indicates a provisional response, consisting only of the Status-Line and optional headers, and is terminated by an empty line. Since HTTP/1.0 did not define any 1xx status codes, servers must not send a 1xx response to an HTTP/1.0 client except under experimental conditions.

100 Continue
This means that the server has received the request headers, and that the client should proceed to send the request body (in the case of a request for which a body needs to be sent; for example, a POST request). If the request body is large, sending it to a server when a request has already been rejected based upon inappropriate headers is inefficient. To have a server check if the request could be accepted based on the request’s headers alone, a client must send Expect: 100-continue as a header in its initial request and check if a 100 Continue status code is received in response before continuing (or receive 417 Expectation Failed and not continue).
101 Switching Protocols
This means the requester has asked the server to switch protocols and the server is acknowledging that it will do so.
102 Processing  (RFC 2518)
As a WebDAV request may contain many sub-requests involving file operations, it may take a long time to complete the request. This code indicates that the server has received and is processing the request, but no response is available yet. This prevents the client from timing out and assuming the request was lost.
122 Request-URI too long
This is a non-standard IE7-only code which means the URI is longer than a maximum of 2083 characters.

Earth Hour 2011

Earth Hour Malaysia

Remember our previous post regarding to the Earth Hour 2010 ? Earth Hour 2011 is coming soon in this month.

On 26th March 2011 millions of people around the globe will unite for one hour and switch off their lights to show that they care about our living planet.

After watching some video clip above, we believe you already have some concept on mind. Let’s us tell you some history about earth hour in Malaysia.

Since its inception three years ago, Earth Hour’s non-partisan approach has captured the world’s imagination and became a global phenomenon.Nearly one billion people turned out for Earth Hour 2009 – involving 4,100 cities in 87 countries on seven continents.

On Saturday 27 March, Earth Hour 2010 became the biggest Earth Hour ever. A record 128 countries and territories joined the global display of climate action. Iconic buildings and landmarks from Asia Pacific to Europe and Africa to the Americas switched off. People across the world from all walks of life turned off their lights and came together in celebration and contemplation of the one thing we all have in common – our planet.

2009 was the first time Malaysia officially participated in Earth Hour bringing Malaysians to turn off their lights for one hour to show their support towards climate change. Many prominent landmarks switched off their lights and Malaysians celebrating. Its estimated that more than 5million Malaysians participated in Earth Hour.

Features:

  • Persistent zero-day threat protection made easy for everyone – even novice users!
