am i missing something here? if it matters, my OS is Tiger... ruby  
1.8.2 (2004-12-25) [powerpc-darwin8.2.0]

alternatively, how to you make Mechanize work from inside rails? i'm  
trying to screen scrape a table from another site then load the  
information back on my page.

why does time fly so fast when i'm stuck on something?
