Hi Nathan,

The interactive interpreter is your friend. I just displayed a simple 
dialog without creating a  Tkinter App, complete with a mailoop or 

But I won't tell you how... you need to import the module and then use 
one of its functions. But you need to try it yourself (be aware that 
this module only gives you basic dialogs, like a text message ona 
little window with an 'Accept' button...)

Remember that you can use the dir() function and the help() function on 
the interactive interpreter.
