Notes on the video[edit]

"[referrer] is spelled incorrectly here" - you could be more precise if it is spelled incorrectly according to its RFC ("referer") or the English language ("referrer"). --Onse (discusscontribs) 09:40, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

Another note on the video: Though Rene is making the correct point that the header field order doesn't matter in HTTP, this can not be assumed by his code: The log method iterates over the hash map which naturally sorts its values by the key hashes. If we'd have used a LinkedHashMap, the order most likely would have been exactly the same as specified in the HTTP request sent via the Telnet connection! -- (discuss) 10:38, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
