Have you read what I last posted? Or did you just ignore it and gave me
the answer to a already answered question? Yes I have read RFC2616 more
than once and I do understand a lot of it but not all stays on my head
in the few times I read the document. I don’t know but I have read in a

The hostname is never supplied as part of the GET line.
Of course you supplied it to Ruby’s TCPSocket.new method, but at that
the hostname is converted to an IP address before the connection is
