What instructions are you talking about?

I'm sure that was very clear in your head when you wrote that, but think 
about how it looks to us. We could be reading your email hours, days, 
even months later. We see your comment about complicated instructions, 
but all context is lost and we have no idea what instructions you mean. 
You could be taking about anything.

I'm not sure who you are talking to here. Most of us already have Python 

As a matter of fact, I have at least ten different versions of Python 
installed: Python 1.5, 2.4, 2.5, 2.6, 2.7, 3.2, 3.3, Jython, IronPython 
and even an ancient copy of Python 0.9, and let me tell you that is 
*really* different. What I don't have is a crystal ball to tell what you 
are talking about <wink>
