Python, TkInter, OSX (OS X) and making it all behave

I use Python a lot. Python 2.5.1 to be specific. And inside Python is TkInter, which, with a little work, will give you a handy way to put a GUI together. But there are problems.

So you’re left to Google for answers, and mostly, they aren’t to be found — or if they are, they aren’t obvious or easily found. So I’m going to provide some answers here that have taken me quite some time to collect, and hopefully keyword and title them so that a Google search will actually get you to the solution you need sooner rather than as much later as it did me!

Deb created the “sea” out of stained glass, and I mounted it in a box to protect it. The ship is about 2 and 3/4ths inches long; the wake is powdered flour and an application of WinImages’ “radial wave” effect using layers to separate the ship from the water.
