It worked. Thanks!

Naa, reading tutorials is for idiots... You can
got anything better to do. I bet you've read the
tutorial, haven't you?

(a period of awkward silence...)

(a short while of WTF?!)

Oh, ah! This guy was joking. Pfew...

Yes, i was definitely joking here.   :)
I do intend to go through the tutorial and i do
deeply appreciate all the help i've received/ i'll
receive. If all goes the way i hope, i'll be at a
new project soon and it's written in Python. Great
opportunity to learn it, right?

By the way - thanks!
