You are quite correct in your statements. My goal was not to make
great code but something that I could quickly test. My assumption was
that the httplib.HTTPSConnection() would do the cast to int for me.
As soon as I cast it to an int, I was able to get past that issue.
Still not able to post because I am getting a bad cert error.
