That isn't your problem, if you look closely, you seem to have a problem
with your version of 'time'. If you look at the top of 'domain.py',
there is this line:

import time

This tells python to use the 'time' module, this module should have the
attribute 'time', you can check this with 'pydoc time.time' run in
a terminal, this should produce info about 'time.time'.
