 >>> Eric - to call a function that is located inside another module  
you first need to import that module into the program you are running:

from test.py import * # this would import all functions from test.py
from test.py import freshReboot # this will import freshReboot from  

to call freshReboot in your program you would simply call it by it's  
name freshReboot

ex: x = freshReboot()
