Hi everyone,

I was working on a small program to contact a third party website and
retrieve some classified advertisements.  Information must be
transmitted to the website in the form of a struct, and returned as a
struct as well.  I have managed to define the structs in question, but I
have run into some really annoying bugs when trying to transmit
information to the website.  Whenever I try, I get this message.

RuntimeError in Ads#test

Wrong content-type:

I have looked at my webrick server and don't see any evidence that the
website in question was contacted.  The line the program is crashing on
is this:"search", @testserverdata)

I have checked and @testserverdata is properly formed - the issue is in
the call, or the kind of data it is transmitting / expecting to
transmit.  Does anyone have any idea how I can resolve this?  I tried
googling but really found nothing.  (You can see the whole sordid ordeal
on my blog here:

Anyone have any ideas?
