49 This library was heavily influenced by its namesake in the perl world. A big
50 thanks goes to Andy Lester (andy@petdance.com), the author of the original
51 perl Mechanize which is available here[http://search.cpan.org/~petdance/WWW-Mechanize-1.20/]. Ruby Mechanize would not be around without you!

53 Thank you to Michael Neumann for starting the Ruby version. Thanks to everyone
54 who's helped out in various ways. Finally, thank you to the people using this
55 library!
