```Hello,

I'm working at a certain website's puzzles using pythonin order to learn the
language, but am stuck understanding what is going on in my code (ie why it
doesn't do as expected)

the intention of this snippet is to only print slices where character 1 is
lower case, 2-4 and 6-8 are upper.  The logic here looks right to a VB eye.

Here's the code...

h = range(len(s)-9)
for i in h:
j=s[i:i+8]
if j[0].islower():
if j[1:3].isupper():
if j[5:7].isupper():
print j

Any help much appreciated!
