Yes. Somewhere or other you've got your tabstop set to 4, and python
treats literal tabs as being of equivalent indent to 8 spaces. As
does my newsreader, so the problem was obvious:
tries += 1
^ This was a tab (my cut&paste has turned it back into spaces)
^ This was a tab too.
if guess == number:
^^^^^^^^ This was eight spaces even before I cut&pasted.
