I can too.... now. ;)  

But if I wrote something to do this now I'd probably write it in Tcl.... easy 
to make a gui that works on Linux, Windows or Mac, capabiliities similar to 
perl (though with kinda retarded syntax) and trivial to make a standalone 
executable on any of those platforms which is surprisingly unbloated (I've 
never had one that didn't fit on a floppy yet.)  

I've been working on an emulator front end so I can run the same interface off 
of CD or floppy on all the machines in my house and while Tcl is an annoying 
language, the crossplatformness without size or dependencies or low level 
programming is kinda nice.
