Well I would suggest you use Tkinter for the GUI because for what you
want to do.  I do not feel that wxPython or any of the Designers are
really that ready, not like VB or something.  Tkinter can be learned
about 14 hours so that you can make interesting stuff, I do not feel
that wxPython can be grokked in a like period of time.  I too had
ambitions of GUI stuff when just starting but have since found CGI to
a much easier UI than any other.  However I would like to say that I
Pythoncard to good effect, but it is still immature and not really
newbie friendly, which I believe none of the GUI designers are mature
enough to be really easy.
