  1. Handling exceptions
    1. except [except0.py]
    2. except exceptcode [except1.py]
    3. else [except2.py]
    4. except exceptcode as msgvar [except3.py]
    5. finally [except4.py]
    6. Exceptions in a function: who handles them? [except5.py, except6.py]
    7. Using global variables as error flags [except6a.py]
    8. raise exceptcode message [except7.py]

  2. Randomness [random.py]
    1. Pseudorandomness vs. randomness
    2. random returns random number between 0.0 and 1.0 (but never 1.0)
    3. randint(low, high) returns random integer between low and high inclusive
    4. seed(n) uses a fixed starting point for the sequence
    5. choice(seq) returns a randomly-selected element of the sequence seq
    6. choices(seq, k=n) returns a list of n randomly-selected elements of the sequence seq
    7. shuffle(seq) shuffles the elements of the sequence seq in place
