Great! I'm happy to hear that!

When you use DreamPie you have two processes. The first one displays the GUI (using PyGTK), and starts another process, which runs the actual code you write. It communicates with the first process by using a socket - it sends commands such as "execute this code" and "fetch the list of attributes of this object". It also captures the standard output and standard error of the process and displays them in the history box.

Hope this helps!
