No not being silly but array is a single dimensional array. I needed

The answer is
	MyArray = [ [0]*512 for i in range(512) ]

I found this to be really peculiar and hard to understand. I have had to
think about it for a while and I am off to to read Guido's
tutorials on lists.

However it sparks an interest in my mind when I look at it. I wonder how
much expression I have in generating lists when doing this. I
can obviously put some type of program statement into it's generation.
It makes me wonder how many other tricks there are with lists.
