[SciPy-user] Is there a collection of useful functions/modules?

Hi Joshua,

There is a scipy cookbook at http://www.scipy.org/Cookbook

It's a great place to put those kinds of functions, but also to write your
thoughts on scipy. Having a newcomers perspective is always useful for other
folks starting with python.

Welcome aboard,
