hey guys,

    i've only been using python for a few days now and i was following a non-programers tutorial. one of the excercises was to make a password program that after 3 incorrect guesses at the password tells the user that the pass was incorrect. this is what i got:

password = "foobar"
count = 0
while password != "nabbers":
    if count < 3:    
        password = raw_input("Password:")
        count = count + 1
        print "Too complicated, huh?"  
print "Welcome inside."

    i can get it to say "Welcome inside." if the pass is correct, but if the pass is guessed wrong three times it just keeps looping "Too complicated, huh?" i was wondering if it is supposed to do that or if there is a way that i can get it to say it once then quit. any help i would jump up and down for.

        newbie to python,

    Nick Noda
