Note to the administrators of scipy/cookbook

I'm planning to describe a method that could help other people to keep track of their simulations and provide simple framework. It is available as pypi package. A tutorial can be found here. In the recipe I would just describe what I did in the python code.

Do you think this is appropriate here? The script does not make use of scipy or numpy but I think the audience of might like the idea! Please let me know if this is an inappropriate recipe, otherwise I will just start writing next week.


The idea is to use python in combination with gmail as a powerful but yet simple tool to document runs of computer simulations, their parameters, starting times, progress and results.

import numpy as np
