Actually, the value returned by raw_input() *is* a string, but you might
want to check to see whether the user has actually typed in an integer as
opposed to typing, say, "Go away you stupid computer."

    indput = str(int(indput))
except ValueError:
    print "No, you need to give me an integer."

You could consider using the built-in function len().

I don't actually read my hotmail account, but you can replace hotmail with
excite if you really want to reach me.
