+Charles Profitt it looks good. I wanted to point out a couple builtins that help you here. One, you don't need to close the files when using the 'with' statement (+Andre Müller  picked that out too). Two, using the readlines() function handles all the newline stripping, Three by putting it inside the 'zip' function your script will handle unequal inputs in a predictable way. The main story is that Python has SO many built-ins that a lot of the complex stuff melts away into the imports, you just have to know them. Happy coding, and keep it up.

Cool to see that used. I used to run it one and a while when I knew someone was shoulder surfing.
A few years ago, I wrote and released a fun little script that would carve up an Ubuntu Byobu terminal into a bunch of splits, running various random command line status utilities. 100% complete technical mumbo jumbo. The go...

Engadget: Symantec antivirus security flaw exposes Linux, Mac and Windows.

Most IT professionals have avoided Symantec products for a good long while, but it is still amazing to read that not only does AV fail to protect your computer it also compromises it.
Whether you're using Linux, Windows or a Mac, you're vulnerable if you haven't patched up.

Interesting... I did not know Penn and Teller were so political. They appear to cut pretty evenly down the center.

They are very strongly libertarian. Their views tend to span the normal political divide - pro-science, pro-guns, anti-welfare, anti-religion.
