Earthquakes - Plotting Seismograms

Let's get away from how warm we are right now, and go to good, honest physics.  I was always more interested in earthquakes, but there haven't been many lately.  I'm mainly interested in the proper plots for my home-made seismometer.

I have used kst, which is the kde plotting package.  It's great, but then I found Obspy, which is more geared to seismic.  I installed it into an Anaconda environment, which is like a Python, scientific container.  If you are on a big Linux machine, you don't have to worry about all the crap on the main machine, or bothering the sysadmin.  This makes a uniform environment for everybody.

I'm following the obspy tutorial right now, and everything is working.
