// early experiments with node had mysterious double requests
// turned out these were for the stoopid favicon
// here's how to short-circuit those requests
// and stop seeing 404 errors in your client console
var http = require('http');
http.createServer(function (q, r) {
// control for favicon
if (q.url === '/favicon.ico') {
r.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'image/x-icon'} );
r.end();
console.log('favicon requested');
return;
}
// not the favicon? say hai
console.log('hello');
r.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'} );
r.write('Hello, world!');
r.end();
}).listen(8000);
console.log('Server running at http://127.0.0.1:8000/');
