I am writing a script to download webpages from a favourite radio program
in order to grab the URLs ot MP3s of recent shows that I want to then pass
on to XMMS to play. I am able to get the pages, but often I get an error
that the connection has been reset by the peer, specifically:

/usr/lib/ruby/1.6/net/protocol.rb:582:in `sysread': Connection reset by
peer (Errno::ECONNRESET)
	from /usr/lib/ruby/1.6/net/protocol.rb:582:in `fill_rbuf' from

	/usr/lib/ruby/1.6/net/http.rb:314:in `get' from ./testhttp.rb:34:in
	`get_shows_data' from ./testhttp.rb:85

I wrote a class to encapsulate the logic of this script. I have an
instance variable to take care of the connection to the host. In methods
that use this variable. 

Specifically, the code is:
@h = Net::HTTP.new('radio.cbc.ca')

I call resp, data = @h.get('/programs/quirks/archives.htm', nil)

to get the data for that connection. I have tried calling the finish
method on the connection after this to end the connection session. This
does not help What are the proper steps to initiate a connection, grab a
web page's data, then disconnect? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
