I've written a script (see below) to automate this process but thus far have been unable to get it to work. I suspect that there's a simple reason for this, but I'm a complete novice with Python and have been unable to find it.

<snip script>

What you've written translates, in newsgroup-speak, to "Will somebody
write this script for me that I need?"

Boil your question down into something smaller, and then ask it with
the appropriate information. I suggest reading
