Eric,

Thanks for the well-thought-out answers to some of my recent posts.

I've been using:

http://pythonmac.org/packages/py24-fat/index.html

for installing scipy, numpy, and matplotlib, as I didn't feel as  
confident installing things manually.

Should I be using svn instead? (Is that what most users do?) And if  
so, is there a two-minute tutorial on what I'd need to do to get that  
stuff running on my machine? (The code I end up using needs to be  
stable enough for classroom use).

Thanks again,

--b
