Web Page Redirect?

Thought it would be cool to have a quote of the day come up on panel backgrounds. Actually having a hard time finding quote of the day websites. The main one that comes up apparently returns a "302". Which I guess is a redirect. Anyone know how to work this?


BUTTON_EVENT [vdvTP,1250] // Query Quote

ONLINE: (* Socket connected *)
SEND_STRING dvQuote, "'GET /quotes_of_the_day.html HTTP/1.1',13,10"
SEND_STRING dvQuote, "'Host: brainyquote.com',13,10"
SEND_STRING dvQuote, "'Authorization: Basic',13,10"
SEND_STRING dvQuote, "'User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20070725 Firefox/',13,10"
SEND_STRING dvQuote, "13,10"

Thanks for any ideas!

    Most likely the problem is because you are askiling for the link from brainyquote.com, but their server wants you to get it from www.brainyquote.com. So change your online event Host: header line to this:
    SEND_STRING dvQuote, "'Host: www.brainyquote.com',13,10"
    And then you shouldn't get the 302.
