My name is Tom Grydeland, I am PhD of physics, working in a small
petroleum exploration company in Norway called Discover Petroleum.  As
part of expanding our collection of exploration tools, we have a
significant research and development effort, and the majority of our
in-house development uses Python with NumPy and SciPy.  Without the
availability of a convenient cross-platform interactive environment
such as that provided by IPython, the choice of Python as a language
would have been less obvious.  While there are alternatives, they
typically are much more expensive, or inconvenient, or both.  Thank
you so much for your efforts, they are much appreciated.
