I am developing a streaming client in ruby, so far so good... now I am trying 
to get Net::HTTP to behave like an IO with no luck. I need Net::HTTP to read 
the headers as it usually does but stop at before reading the body of the 
page so I can read the stream in chunks and feed them to the player.

I read this article 

http://redhanded.hobix.com/inspect/theStoryOfStreamingHttpThroughMouseholeWithSubsequentAdventuresInContinuationsAndDuckTyping.html

but I can't get it to work.

any help is appreciated.....
