Well ok, I thought you said programming a bit torrent client was 
trivial as well :D

Anyway programming is never trivial... make one little mistake 
somewhere and the one billionth buffer overrun is born =D

Neh, windows has wininet which has already an implementation of the 
http protocol. Besides from that I already read it once... possibly 
not completely since most of it doesn't concern me. So far I have 
tested wininet and http and microsoft's documentation contains things 
about http which need to be set like http version or referrer that 
sort of thing.

If I decide in the future to implement my own http implementation 
then I might have to read that text... But even then I would prefer 
some tutorials etc. Since the http specs might have been written by 
the "inventors" which might make them harder to understand for 
anybody really except them ;) So when a newbie/outsider looks at the 
technology and decides to document it that documentation might be 
much more easy to read from a newbie/outsider perspective ;)
