Dan, et al.:

Related to this name issue of distinguishing between python versions is
something I learned just yesterday. When using pip to download and isntall
numpy3 the correct syntax is 'pip3 install numpy'. There are still two
versions of pip, but by using pip3 it will grab the proper version of numpy.

Thanks for all the insights,
