Hello all,

    finally, i found a way to make to a+=b works,
    but, i don't understand why it works... ;(

    i changed the script from:

        for item in thecookies:
            mycookies += item

    to:

        for item in thecookies:
            mycookies += repr(item)

    and thing works fine.

    i've also check the "type" of both the "item" &
    "mycookies" and they both are "str".

    i don't understand why i need to use the repr to
    make it work...

    sigh...
