[Tutor] I'm clearly not getting an important pygtk concept

I created the following script to test my understanding of creating
simple pygtk GUIs.
import gtk, urllib
"""This function stores an object that pings Peter's writerscafe.org
open_page = urllib.urlopen(web)
def plink(widget, web):
print "I just pinged", web
web = "http://www.mywebsite.com/"
window = gtk.Window(gtk.WINDOW_TOPLEVEL)
ping_button = gtk.Button("ping me")
ping_button.connect("clicked", plink, web)
I am not sure what's wrong with the script as I've typed it above. I
expected this script to generate a button with the label "ping me". I
expected that when I press this button that my webserver log would show
that someone with the user-agent python-urllb just tried to access my site.
This is not happening unfortunately. Sometimes pressing the button
registers in my logs and sometimes it does not. Pressing the button
twice in rapid succession may cause a hit to register if a single click
did not. Pressing the button 5 or 6 times will cause 4 or 5 hits. What
is it I am not understanding?
