    Anyone have any experience with web scraping? I'm trying to learn Mechanize and running into Net::Http::Timeouts, and occasionally 500s

      I haven't used Mechanize. It looks like you can configure the timeout time like this http://stackoverflow....­. If the site doesn't respond for a very long time you will have to catch the Net::Http::Timeout with a begin rescue block and decide what to do. I think the 500 errors are likely from the site being broken when responding to those particular URLs or maybe if Mechanize tries to GET the URL when the site expects a POST. It will probably help to find out which URLs are failing. You may find you need to somehow tell Mechanize to ignore certain URLs.

      Thanks David
      Thanks for the advice. I got the timeouts working correctly and am trying to rescue the 500 exceptions, but so far no luck.
