as a warning, last I checked pip did not support binary installs, and
you really want a binary installer for numpy/scipy, unless you've got
your development environment set up just the way you like it. That
requires some significant experience, particularly on Windows.

So: the lots-of-stuff-at-once distributions are a great option.

Otherwise, go to the PyPi web site, search for what you want, and on
the package page there is usually a link to main package website,
and/or its download site, on which you should find binary installers
for the more common, complex packages.

You can get binaries for numpy and scipy from the sourceforge site
linked to from scipy.org.
