It's interesting to me that, although you provided no help or answers to me,
you are convinced that you did. In fact, it is clear from your first
response that your intention has been to amuse yourself by spouting attitude
at me. Hope you had a good time. Meanwhile, Fredo has provided a nice answer
that WORKS... along with an explanation of why my code didn't work. He was
HELPFUL and didn't seem to have the need to belittle me for not being a
professional Python Master. You remind me of one of these teens on IRC who
have no other pleasure in life but to sit around and boot people out of
their precious little chat rooms. I imagine if this was IRC, you would have
booted me at the first post.
