Coding success

The first disc burned with the Linux version of FitOnCD is a fact. Version 2.0 is written completely in Python, using the PyGTK toolkit to provide a GUI.
I took advantage of the rewrite to leave off some unused features, and to add a few that could prove to be handy in the future. But it works! And it does everything that the old version did -- perhaps a bit better. It's not 'consumer-level' code, but I know in which order to push the buttons to get things done, and that's the most important part.

I also now know more of GTK than I would want to. My next programming project will use Glade to create the GUI. Especially modal forms are a bit of a pain to code manually...
