Sorry James, I don't agree. There is no excuse for being rude - no 
matter how high-speed a hacker you are. It was a reasonable question 
from a new user (I've asked several questions like this in the past - 
maybe I was wrong). If the answer was so obvious, then Demian should 
have answered the question and then included a link to the python docs - 
not a link on how to properly ask questions on a mailing list. Compared 
to all the "where can I download python?" questions I've seen on this 
list over the two years that I've been on the list, Henry deserved a 
better response.
