size is an attribute, not a method:

that's not an error message, that's the standard string representation 
of the sequence-like object returned by getdata().  as explained here:


you can use list() to convert it to an ordinary list.  you can also 
iterate over it, or pass it to any function that expects a sequence 
object or iterator.

see your favourite python tutorial for more information on things like
attributes, sequences, iterators, exceptions and tracebacks, etc.
