Hi Cameron.
I think you may have misunderstood my problem.
When my code runs it doesnt throw any exception. It just hangs(stops executing) for unknown reasons. I want to know why. It doesnt even throw ConnectionError unless I press CTRL+C(only because I hard coded ConnectionError).
I can repost the whole problem again if you want me to.
