Thanks for the help...

The tuple thing is a new concept to me... at least the vocabulary is,
I'll go look that up now and learn info on tuples. It's been ages
since I did any python programming, and even back then it was fairly
simple stuff (this was about 9 years ago)... so I'm relearning by
working on this little project.

I also forgot that you can do printf style output too... that helps a
lot and is something I need to write on my forehead or something :-)
