Where did I come from?

In this case, not really a philosophical question, but one of relevance to web browsing.

HTTP provides a value “referer”, which is the URL of the page from which the current request originated.

In ASP, this value can be retrieved with Request.ServerVariables(“HTTP_Referer”).

See this W3Schools page for details.

Here are a couple of code snippets to illustrate:

 for each x in Request.ServerVariables
   response.write(x & "<br>")
 next

response.write Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFERER")

Corn Tortilla Chips can also be made at home

Here’s a Recipe

Ingredients

  • Corn tortillas
  • Canola oil
  • Coarse salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Cut tortillas into 6 or 8 triangles. Place on cookie sheet.
  3. Brush pitas with oil. Sprinkle with the coarse salt.
  4. Bake in preheated oven ~15 minutes. Watch carefully–they burn easily.

If possible, watch through the oven door rather than opening the door to inspect. Every time you open the door, the oven cools dramatically, and the chips will take longer to crisp up.
