Shortly after we released Unirest.io, we received a ton of feedback from developers who would like to get a Windows 8 and .NET port.  Before we can even get to it, we received contributions from Michael Azarkevich and Michael Sync who ported Unirest to the two platforms.  To the two Michaels, a HUGE THANK YOU!  You rock m/ We have officially rolled them in with the rest of the Unirest libraries here.  You…

One particular useful use-case for them is where developers have to sign up for separate accounts from the API provider and Mashape
