['requests'] is in these articles:
a Python library that supports IPP (internet priniting protocol)
requests, and includes support for CUPS print servers. From Pykota.
a request/response handler object, main page is here, here on the
CheeseShop. WebOb provides wrappers around WSGI requests and responses.
Make a rocket car from old plastic pop bottles
spam by setting the primary MX record to point to a server that
does not respond to mail delivery requests. Apparently most spam
delivery clients will only try the first MX record.

Pound is a
and load-balancer that sits between the external web clients and a set
of web servers. It also has the ability to decrypt HTTPS requests from
clients and turn them into plain HTTP requests of the servers.
- Wikipedia writes about the Slashdot effect, the example load graph they include shows a web server going from idle to delivering content at a 900k bytes/sec rate and gradually declining over a 12 hour period. Simple integration of this curve (which is essentially a triangular shape) leads to a total delivery of about 19GB of data in response to Slashdot requests. A visualization of this effect can be seen here.

- Pylot is a testing system for web applications, it has a test case recorder that can log HTML requests made by your browser as you navigate a site. 
- How to make XML-RPC calls from within a Google App Engine server - to get around the Google sandbox limitation that forbids the creation of sockets, but allows outgoing HTTP requests. 
- This recipe contains a variation on the processing.Pool which allows multiple threads to send the same requests without incurring duplicate processing. 
- Some of the certificate authorities have problems with their registration process that allows attackers to submit requests for any domain. 
- Python HTTP Pipelining is an implementation of HTTP Pipelining for Python, this allows an HTTPConnection to send the next request(s) ahead of time (i.e. before the response to the previous request has been received). Now if only an HTTP server could send responses back to the client before the client makes the requests...  
- There appear to be some loop holes in the legal system in the US that are allowing seemingly large amounts of cell phone GPS data to be collected by law enforcement (and perhaps other parties). Discussed here on Slashdot, here on Wired and here is the EFF's take on the matter. Now that Sprint has a web interface for this one wonders if a lot of these requests are happening without the appropriate authorization, perhaps once one is granted access for a case then Sprint does not get in the way of you checking any phone's movements? The potential for this sort of monitoring is pretty amazing, especially if one can get the numbers that a particular phone calls or receives calls from and then trace the movements of those phones. Or perhaps one could do a time and space bounded query: "give me all the phones that were in a 2 block radius of this location between the hours of interest on this date". Yup, big brother is watching you now.
