Sorry about that. I should put in prominent warnings that the demos
aren't actively maintained.

In this case the problem is that the old demo wants to use sslv2, but
the updated Context constructor explicitly disables that, so we don't
have any ssl versions available to do the connection.

The easiest way to fix this is to take out the argument to SSL.Context()
and let it use the defaults (defaults to all ssl versions).

I am fixing that demo as we speak, so it will be included in the next
M2Crypto release.
