in reply to "406 not acceptable" errors with LWP::UserAgent::get

As an aside, there's no need to set a Host header. Yes, it's required by HTTP (unless you're still using HTTP 1.0), but LWP::UserAgent will do that for you. As would HTTP::Tiny or any other HTTP client library worth its salt.

The only benefit you get from specifying it manually is the wonderful opportunity to screw things up.
