Thanks in advance for any help you folks can provide.

Using Ruby + Watir, I've written a script that launches IE, goes to my
company's web site, and logs in, also recording the time for each
transaction.

I cannot figure out how to do one last thing though, I need to capture
a string of text that will always begin with "server" and output it to
the csv I am outputting to .This string of text is always at the bottom
our our web site. Below you'll find my attempt at a script :) , any
ideas you may have are greatly appreciated.
