I was trying to play with open-uri as shown on Whytheluckystiff's
What's Shiny and new in Ruby 1.8 article:

  require 'open-uri'
  require 'yaml'
 
  open( "http://www.whytheluckystiff.net/why.yml" ) do |f|
    feed = YAML::load( f )
  end


But I'm behind a firewall and need to use a proxy to get out.  Any way
to use proxies with open-uri?
