comment Switching from Matlab to Python for Quant Trading and Research
Py - interpreted, flexible, simple. Java - compiled, strict, bloated. Java's a nice language for building a big complicated system with many developers working on it, but crummy for rapid prototyping of an idea. I also think SciPy is better than any Java numerical lib I've used.

comment Free/cheap source of structured historical quarterly filings?
Was looking for something a little less labor intensive than XBRL processing - and I'm worried about coverage issues for e.g. small-cap companies that can't afford to prepare their reports in XBRL. Something like CSVs of trailing Revs, Earnings, Shares Outstanding, basic balance sheet info, and basic cash flow info. I'll leave this question open for a few days - if nothing more straightforward comes up I'll gladly accept this response.
