I'm awfully sorry, but my crystal balls still aren't back from the 
menders, so let's try again.  Precisely explain what happened when you 
tried the 'pip', 'get-pip.py' and 'easy-install.py' commands?  Could it 
have been nuclear holocaust, ice cream dripping down your shirt front, 
something like "pip isn't recognised as a Windows command", or whatever 
the wording actually is, or even a Python traceback, in which case 
please cut and paste it, in full, here?
