Plan of Attack

After skimming some of the Python programming tutorials in the last week or two, I've decided that I will start slowly but definitely start! I found the tutorial written by the inventor of Python Guido van Rossum. Best to go straight to the source. I'm going to set up a simple flat file database and build the functions to read, write, search, insert and edit entries into that database. The stuff relating to file I/O seems fairly simple. I thought it would be better to get the mechanics of it down while learning the language and then use those tools to put a pretty GUI onto it later. We'll have to see how this baby competes against the other 50 million things I have on my list ;)
