Toasting pumpkin or squash seeds - is there a trick?

Okay, the time is approaching when I will once again probably try and fail to toast pumpkin seeds and achieve something edible. I can't list how many recipes I've tried, and somehow they all turn out dreadfully tough and woody. Is it really possible to make good roasted/toasted pumpkin or squash seeds at home? If so, how? Or is this just something that people say they eat and like, but nobody really does?
