I second the IPython suggestion.  I don't use it that often, but when 
I'm doing interactive number crunching, it's my tool of choice.  The 
ability to interactively go back and edit some block of code, then 
re-execute it, is really handy when exploring a dataset.  And the tight 
integration of graphing/plotting libraries is awesome.

I tend to use it in the mode where I'm running the compute kernel on a 
remote machine (typically a big machine in a data center somewhere) and 
the display portion in a browser on my desktop.
