Everything you've every wanted to know about the HTTP protocol

Hey there, boys and girls!  For that matter; Hey there to any other diminutive that falls somewhere in the lexicon!


Wait... hold on a second.   One of my cats is being very insistent on being petted at this very moment... seriously...

*scritch-scritch*

*scritch-scritch*

*scritch-scritch*

*scritch-scritch*

*scritch-scritch*

...And with his mighty fangs empathy, he has informed me that he has been sated with a loving flesh-maul of kindness.   Now back to business...


It's the first week of the month and I've managed an approximate 4 hours sleep in the past three days.  Well, I think it's been around 4 hours.  That numbery thing you do with other numbers is the... um... some-low-value-rst... thing to go when you are sleep deprived.  

Never mind that, though.  I've got about half of a Columbia worth of coffee in my right now, and I'm all out of fucks to give.  That can mean only one thing, right?  This is the MeetUp description for the next STL2600 / DC314 meeting!


*sips from a glass of lemonade*


So this Friday, November 4th according to my phone, Bob is going to be doing the dancing monkey thing solo.  The song he'll be doing his little pirouette to: "Everything you've every wanted to know about the HTTP protocol, but were too afraid to ask your sex-Ed teacher about."


Side-note: Auto-correct has been a real pain senior discount moneymaker, if you catch my innuendo.  But it was pretty damn amusing how insistent auto-correct was that the "s" be lowercase, and the second "e" be capitalized.  Really puts a different spin on it when you treat "Ed" as a proper noun.  But I digress.


...I've just dropped lemonade on the floor.  Anyone know the Meowish phrase for "No, cat.  Please do not lick that liquid off the floor"?


Anyway, let's try to conduct this train of thought back towards Stay-on-topicsville.  I did try to suggest to Bob, that the title for this song might be a smidgen too long.  He got all belligerent with me about how I was stifling his creativity and that he won't let anybody censor his art.  Actually, his exact words were "I'm not really going to be dancing, Joe.  That was just some made-up shit you wrote," but I think we can all read between the lines.

The point is he's been working really hard at it, and practicing a lot.  He would take that HTTP protocol apart, label and sort all the little bits into bins, then put it all back together.  Most of the time he didn't have any extra parts left over either!

In actuality, the focus is about diving deep into a protocol.  Any protocol, really.  Get up in there, examine the dental work and check the CarFax.  But since HTTP is a protocol that everyone has been exposed to on some level, it makes for a pretty good kiddie-pool to test your floaties in.


Well those are pretty much the relevant bits.  Especially the part where my cat wants to be petted.  There will be a quiz on that part later.

    There is no option for it...so like an election with no reasonable options to reflect my stance, I'll be choosing a write-in: Tentative

    I'm curious as to the result if 'Tentative' were to win the Popular Vote on Nov 8th 🤔

      We never depend on the count of who actually RSVP's or not. There's always plenty of room

      Stupid ENTER key auto-posting before I was done typing!

      As I was saying... No on should feel they shouldn't attend because didn't RSVP to the Meetup invitation. It's just a mechanism for announcing the topic.
