in reply to Mechanize giving errors for no reason
Yes, some sites do watch to see that clients aren't hammering their site -- which is reasonable, when you think about it.
We'd be able to help you a great deal more if you were more specific about *which* errors you were seeing.
And .. do you think that Mechanize *randomly* spits out errors? There's almost always a very good reason for errors.
