Thanks again Kent! I think this is working. In a past email I had one
test failing, 93-RetrieveResults.t, and I think that's because I don't
have any results to retrieve.

And the account balance script needed to be forced to query the
production environment:

use strict;
use warnings;
use Net::Amazon::MechanicalTurk;
# This sample shows how to get your account balance.
my $mturk = Net::Amazon::MechanicalTurk->new;
$mturk->serviceUrl('Production'); # this is the important change
printf "MechanicalTurk account balance: %s\n", $mturk->getAvailableBalance;

I've... seen things you people wouldn't believe...
functions on fire in a copy of Orion.
I watched C-Sharp glitter in the dark near a programmable gate.
All those moments will be lost in time, like Ruby... on... Rails... Time for Pi.
