Hi Vagelis and Kyriaki,

Yes it certainly does feel good. Particularly with the amount of energy that went into getting to this point.

Thanks for the wishes and please give my very best to Kyriaki.

Dave

Regards and Clear Skies,

Thanks Dave, actually the media really bit this one big time. It was everywhere at the time.

RTE 6 One news. www.rte.ie/news/av/2010/1006/6news.html (Look at 34 mins into the programme)

It made the front page of the Indo (see here www.science.ie/science-news/supernova.html ) and was in pretty much every major newspaper that day (6th Oct)
I was on the Daily show with Daithí Ó Sé and Clair Byrne and pretty much every major radio station too.

Regards and Clear Skies,

Dave.

Anyway, very welldone again Dave, you're relentless work makes the rest (well, most) of us look very lazy :)
