I even looked at starting to work on it, before I realized that the main UI is done in Python and I have no clue when it comes to programming Python.

That being said - the program does what it is supposed to do and does it very well. Would I like it prettier? Well, sure. (I'm female, we're odd like that, or most of us are, anyway). But absolutely NOT at the cost of functionality, and not if it takes away time from improving/refining that functionality.

Apparently, what we need is a talented person who does UI design and does it in Python, and can also do it without ruining the functionality of the program. Oh, and works for free. Anyone got anyone like that hiding up their sleeves?
