The first link is into a dangerous area of the site---it's nothing but redirects. Redirect, redirect, redirects, for the rest of time, or until you stop the client, or if the client has code to handle it, after a preset number of redirects it will give up.


I can't tell you the number of redirects until the client is supposed to give up, but I do recall that RFC-2068 (early HTTP/1.1 specification), section 10.3 stated:


> A user agent SHOULD NOT automatically redirect a request more than 5 times, since such redirections usually indicate an infinite loop.


but that later specifications (specifically RFC-2616, which updated HTTP/1.1) lifted such limits to give us our modern "Web From Hell".


So, with that said, the first link is to the "Redirection From Hell" test, a test of a series of temporary redirects, always. The second link is to the next test.
