    Python is pretty cool. I was able to write a simple input form that
    saves the responses to to a temp file so the data could be emailed via a shell command. But I started running into stumbling blocks using some modules. I couldn't get the datetime module to load.. it's in the path

    I installed Mystic on my desktop box to make it easier to test stuff and
    the datetime script ran fine. My desktop runs Ubuntu 16.04. After some
    reading it turns out that the python install on ubuntu 14.04 is buggy, as
    I've read that others are having similar issues with other python apps. instead of debugging it, I think I'll just update that box to 16.04 when I
    get a chance.

    I have been experimenting with python and mpl features. I can't find the MPL.DOC file that is referenced in the Mystic.Txt doc. It's not included
    with 1.12 so I downloaded 1.11 to see if it was in that archive but it wasn't there either. Does anyone have a copy of this file for download?

    Python is pretty cool. I was able to write a simple input form that saves the responses to to a temp file so the data could be emailed via a shell
    command. But I started running into stumbling blocks using some modules. I couldn't get the datetime module to load.. it's in the path but it generates
    an error. Instead of spending too much time with it.. I decided to go with
    mpl since python support is still in the early stages and I am more familiar with pascal than I am with python.. but I am looking forward to learning python; I like the way it's structured.

    Thanks,
