Packing and Unpacking Dictionaries video: workspace code not working...?

I know enough to know I'm probably missing SOMETHING, but as far as I can tell this is identical to the code Ken is using in the video:

def packer(name=None, **kwargs):
    print(kwargs)


def unpacker(first_name=None, last_name=None):
    if first_name and last_name:
        print("Hi {} {}!".format(first_name, last_name))
    else:
        print("Hi no name!")

packer(name="Kenneth", num=42, spanish_inquisition=None)
unpacker(**{"last_name": "Love", "first_name": "Kenneth"})

...but it doesn't run. No error, just:

treehouse:~/workspace$ python luggage.py treehouse:~/workspace$

(Yes the file is saved)

Got it working - must've been a cache thing; when I reloaded the saved luggage.py to get the snapshot, it still had indents on lines 12 & 13 that weren't showing up in the window, even though the file didn't have the unsaved changes dot.

Hi IAN WOOD

I copied your code into my own workspace and it works just fine. Could you possibly take a Snapshot of your workspace then share the link with me so I can have a look at your copy?
