I think I might have it

Previously I had asked what the PUT Request$ and GET Response$ part was for because it didn't look as though it was doing anything at all. Then I looked back over it and now I know that you are supposed to connect to the address to get the ip for the host and then to connect to the host.

But this is what I get when I run it:

HTTP/1.0 400 Bad Request

<script type="text/javascript" src="/static/javascript/lib.js"></script>
message = {};
function read_cookie (name) {
var nameEQ = name + "=";
var ca = document.cookie.split(';');
for (var i = 0; i < ca.length; i++) {
var c = ca[i];
while (c.charAt(0) == ' ') {
c = c.substring(1, c.length);
if (c.indexOf(nameEQ) === 0) {
return c.substring(nameEQ.length, c.length);
return null;
Event.observe(document, 'dom:loaded', function () {
var locale = read_cookie('locale');
if (locale) {
var msg = message[locale];
if (msg) {


This also explains why the client and the host could not exchange information =P

Any ideas on the script above? I don't speak HTML.
