Last response.write is not appearing on page, unhandled 'error' event


The error is coming from the second response.write, but I can't figure out what's wrong. There is supposed to be an error at this point in the video, but it isn't the same error. The error I get is the following: treehouse:~/workspace$ node app.js
Server running at http://<workspace-url>/
throw er; // Unhandled 'error' event

Error: write after end
at write_ (_http_outgoing.js:622:15)
at ServerResponse.write (_http_outgoing.js:617:10)
at Server.<anonymous> (/home/treehouse/workspace/app.js:10 :12)
at emitTwo (events.js:126:13)
at Server.emit (events.js:214:7)
at parserOnIncoming (_http_server.js:660:12)
at HTTPParser.parserOnHeadersComplete (_http_common.js:119 :17)

If you can help me figure out how to recreate the error in the course as well, that'd be great!
