Good post - all I've found on the net so far is a ref to 220 doublings. My damned book on life extension is abt to go to the printers any day now, so I need to do a real quick patch to take this into account. Can you tell me the names of the people involved in the two teams, esp. the 280 doubling effort?

Thanks, Damien
