Boto can't connect to bucket names with '.' dot

This is the long issue with tons of options on how to make it work:

Can't use bucket names with dots #2836 - https://github.com/boto/boto/issues/2836

This is what worked for me:

conn = boto.s3.connect_to_region( 

Have to use connect_to_region and pass in the region where you created your bucket and use the OrdinaryCallingFormat calling format. Otherwise I'd get the following errors:

Note that this is not possible to do using boto.connect_s3.

Without sending in the region:

Traceback (most recent call last):

Not using the right calling format (boto.connect_s3)
