404, Body not found error

I keep on getting a 404 and Body not found error. Copy of my code is below can someone help?

//Problem: simple way to look at user's badge count and Javascript points
//Solution: Use Node.js to connect to Treehouse's API to get profile info to print out
var https = require("https");
var username = "Nadeem";

function printMessage(username,badgeCount, points){
  var message = username + " has " + badgeCount + " total badge(s) and " + points + " points in Javascript";
  console.log(message);
}

//Connect to API URL (http://teamtreehouse.com/username.json)
var request = https.get("https://teamtreehouse.com/" + username +".json", function(response){
  console.log(response.statusCode);
     //Read the data
  response.on('data', function(chunk) {
    console.log('BODY:' + chunk);
  });
     //Parse the data
     //Print the data                 

});
request.on("error", function(error){
   console.error(error.message);
 });

Hey Nadeem,

That happens because that's not your username. It should be: nadeemahmed2!
