The Preeventualist Lost and Found Service

Introduction

The Preeventualist Lost and Found Service was a web service introduced in chapter 6 of why’s Poignant Guide to Ruby. It drove a few exercises, which centered around writing a library to access an ultra-simple REST API. Unfortunately why didn't open-source the code before he disappeared from the internet, so the exercises have been broken for a few years. Boo!

This reborn version of the service is 100% compatible with the API specified in the Poignant Guide, but also adds some new features like JSON and Brooklyn Integer support.
