I figured out what the problem was. When you had suggested that I
indent the lines at first I did all of them, but when I did that there
must have been an nonindented line before the last two lines which I
had indented, so ending the 'while 1:'. Because of that, that code
just flat out didn't work so I assumed that they must be not be
indented which is why it hasn't been working all along. Thanks for
your help! I don't think I would have every figured it out if you last
post hadn't gotten me to thinking about little tweeks like that.
