Hi, sorry for the repost, but I can't seem to reply without registering,
and I can't seem to register... so I'm in quite a predicament (if
there's a way to reply as a guest, please let me know)

I was told this as a solution to my problem:

> how can i download this file using ruby?

require "open-uri"

File.open("my.mp3","wb") do |file|
  file << open("http://...")
end

however, this only works for files that are located directly at that
location i.e. http://random.../random.mp3, not for php hosted files like
the examle I had given.  Please help!
