Make sure to include a README.txt file for your code that tells me what OS you built / tested your code
in and how to compile your code (remember: the easier for me to build it – the happier I am – the better
grade you get).
Code should be easy to read… please comment any complex blocks of code and / or tell me what each of
the methods do (remember: if I understand your code easily – the happier I am – the better grade you
Remember to cite URL sources you use in comments inside your code.

For extra credit, try to get things working with HTTPS (this will earn you a 110/100).
I will test your code with the following URLs:
