Thanks for the reminder DTS. This was my first ever spotting, and the fields were different at the beginning of projectnoah. I need to go back and amend these early spottings.

Thanks Argy. This was my first ever spotting/posting to NOAH - way back in October, 2010. Almost my two-year "anniversary" here.
