I am new to Ruby.  I would like to write a script that will login to
my Verizon account and grab my minute details and calculate my
remaining unused minutes for the month.  This would involve opening an
HTTPS connection, then scraping and calculating the results.  I have
found one Perl and one Java/Firefox solution that does the same, but I
thought it would be a good project to learn more about Ruby.  I would
rather not use external shells (to wget, for example) and rely on the
internal Ruby libraries instead.  I'm looking for advice on what
libraries to use to get me started down the right path.  Thank you.
