Imports again...

Okay, what you all say makes sense, and I am going to try the package
thing again. The "modes" dir is from my last attempt, as is its
"weather" subdir. I think I see what I did wrong, at least I hope I
do. I will also remove the init file from the main dir. Yes, "arm" is
the main directory of the program. Also, I will try to update things
so that most imports happen from the dependencies folder, avoiding the
need to install/copy so much to your local install of Python. Here is
a traceback of the program as it is right now; this is from the exact
same version as the .zip file contains.

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7600]

C:\Users\Alex>cd c:\python26

c:\Python26>python.exe i:\arm\main.pyw
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "i:\arm\main.pyw", line 3, in <module>
    import arm, network, weather, dict
  File "i:\arm\", line 4, in <module>
    import config
  File "i:\arm\", line 4, in <module>
    from main import exitProgram
  File "i:\arm\main.pyw", line 3, in <module>
    import arm, network, weather, dict
  File "i:\arm\", line 4, in <module>
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'ready'


I realize it may be odd to import from main.pyw, but I do not think
that could be causing the problem... could it? Perhaps I should erase
all the .pyc files and let it compile again, or would that not do
