Default chapter 5 Earthquake

Code:
String hostname = "";//"http://earthquake.usgs.gov";
String linkString = hostname + link.getAttribute("href");
Is the link.getAttribute("href") suppose to be returning http://earthquake.usgs.gov as part of the string? On the code I typed, it does return the hostname and the url looks like the following:

http://earthquake.usgs.govhttp://earthquake.usgs.gov/.......


The above code was used to eliminate the extra hostname string.

I think the hostname string was there for parsing relative URL...if the linkstring already contains the hostname part, then you don't need it.

Thank you. I figure it be a logic error on Reto's part.
