End User Computing:

The intent of EUC is for non-programmers or designers, as well as for an individual user who is familiar with code technology, for the same purpose. The aim is to allow end-users to create websites and dynamic designs by the means of a scripting language without the knowledge of code

Ergonomics are design principles relating to the end user’s comfort, efficiency, and safety.

Errors HTTP:
HTTP Errors come in the form of numbers at the search engines, when an error is encountered. A short list of errors most commonly found when surfing the Web are as shown below.

Error 404;
# Not Found, the requested file was not found.

Error 500;
Server Error, in most cases, this error is a result of a problem with the code or program you are calling, rather than with the web server itself.

Error 501;
Not Implemented, the server does not support the facility required.

Error 502;

Ethernet is an LAN or local-area network architecture, using many varied connection abilities, like copper wiring and fiber-optic lines. (Originally developed by Xerox in 1973 and 1974.) It is now one of the most widely implemented LAN standards. Ethernet is used in industrial applications, as well as for such things as interconnecting appliances (printers etc.) and other personal devices. Ethernet has advanced greatly from its initial 10 Mbps to 100 Gb/s.
