Title: Definition of "Bit Bin" not found in web search?
Post by: Paul Price on September 23, 2013, 03:00:07 am
Cannot find the definition of "Bit Bin" on the web. I thought many knew its meaning, legions.

Where do all the stored bits go when a computer is turned off?

It's not "bit bin", it's "bit bucket".  Perhaps a translation error?
