problem with getting web source
How does it fail for you?
Does the URL work from the browser?
Have you tried error diagnosis by switching from LWP::Simple to LWP::UserAgent and looking at the error returned?
Just because it works for me, from my browser, does not mean that it will work for you, from your browser.
I suggest you now use LWP::UserAgent to do the URL downloading. That way, you get more detailed error information instead of just a pass/fail status.

Wait a second, ... is this poll a joke?
