comment How can I get my external IP address in bash?
@mc0e It's quite possible that you are correct in that the Host header was generally used by UAs and servers at that time, but that doesn't mean that HTTP 1.0 specified the header. Which I believe means we are pretty much in agreement.

comment How can I get my external IP address in bash?
@mc0e Citation needed. RFC 1945 does not seem to mention any Host: header, although from a google search it appears that some server and proxy software make use of it if it exists. Section 7.1 of that RFC allows for extension-header so the use of a Host: header is not disallowed in HTTP 1.0, although as far as I can tell it is not specified by the HTTP 1.0 standard either. That said, yes, HTTP 1.1 did make it mandatory (RFC 2616 section 14.23).

comment What is the result of running `chmod 7` on a file?
@LightnessRacesinOrbit Indeed, but what most people don't consider is that the normally-three-octal-digits permission value is actually four octal digits, as shown by Patrick's answer.

comment I accidentally GZIPed a whole bunch of files, one by one, instead of using tar(1). How can I undo this mess?
@Simply_Me OP said gzip and only .gz so what's tar and .tar.gz doing in this answer?

@PaulBGD Please edit your question to include the output of file xxx.gz where xxx.gz is the name of one of the files you inadvertantly compressed.

comment Wrong mount point for internal SSD
Are you sure there is nothing else in your /etc/fstab that matches that partition on the SSD? Please dobule-check. The most likely explanation would seem to be an additional fstab entry, perhaps using some other type of device identifier.
