Next time try to post the exact error message you get - working
crystall balls are hard to find nowadays :)
Ok, it's a syntax error, perhaps you didn't get a useful response from
the server.
The error is here:

>         if (session_key == 0):
>             session_key = create_session(id)
>             print id, , you are logged in with key:", session_key,

That should read:

            print id, "you are logged in with key:", session_key, "\n"
