const string API_Key = "Insert API Key Here";
const string API_Password = "Insert API Password Here";
const string url = "https://<Insert Host Here>/remote/jobs/active.json";
using (var wc = new WebClient())
//Attach crendentials to WebClient header
string credentials = Convert.ToBase64String(Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(API_Key + ":" + API_Password));
wc.Headers[HttpRequestHeader.Authorization] = "Basic " + credentials;
JavaScriptSerializer serializer = new JavaScriptSerializer();
