Of course I wrote that, obviously.  What I didn't do
was include that code in my example... you know, the
code.  At least, I don't see that in any of my code,
but perhaps it's a bug in _my_ newsreader.

The reference to using the time module actually comes from
the OP, and I was merely agreeing that it could be possible to
use that module for the purpose intended (presumably what
is best depends on requirements we don't yet know about).

I point that out merely because one might infer from your
reply that Tkinter was capable of something that wxPython
was not in this case, which wouldn't be true.
