Nice job.

On <>, keeping
all session information in the URL also has the disadvantage that using
the "back" button can cause state (e.g., shopping list contents) to
disappear, which can be quite disorienting to users. Cookies and
transaction IDs in the URL both avoid this.

In <>, the
definition of day is missing a '" ' after the '2'.

On <>, you
want to remove the space after "HTTP://" (and you probably want to make
http lowercase). Also, you may want to specify that you are looking for
the HTTP commands, or one might be expected to describe the DNS lookups
involved (or TCP and ARP for that matter).
