Further to my earlier post are you aware of the behaviour of your 
"string function"?

 >>> def getCompletedTime(start, end): return "Time completed:", str(end 
- start)
...
 >>> t = getCompletedTime(0, -1)
 >>> type(t)
<class 'tuple'>
 >>> t[0]
'Time completed:'
 >>> t[1]
'-1'

Is this what you intended?
