Thanks for all the code suggestions. This is what I was hoping for, but 
was honestly suprised to actually get it all, although I did get at 
least one emotional blast, so I don't feel like Usenet has completely 
changed from it's old self...grin....

I already made a change to the this_page() method based on a 
suggestion, and will happily pursue many of the other sugestions here. 
I'm only about 100 pages into Mark Lutz's "Learning Python" book, so 
I'm sure there is a lot more learning to do.

Thanks for all your input!
