Gee, I'm sorry, I don't *WANT* to spend several hours of my "free
time" reading your monstrous script and doing your work for you.

This is not Rocket Science.

Fix the issues, one by one, until it's done.

Nobody on this list is going to do that for you.

The basic logic is fine, since it can ONLY consist of:

Step 1. Send HTTP request and get response.
Step 2. Interpret HTTP response.
Step 3. Repeat with Step 1.
