I skipped the various dusty disk papers including a very cool one about the double pulsar's orbital decay. I skipped the two new Virtual Observatory papers.

I understand you have outside constraints, but I would really appreciate it if you could shoot me the abs number (or title or some kind of identifying marker) for the double pulsar paper whenever time allows. The bold indicates there needs to be no rush on your part.

Thank you very much.

It doesn't seem like that long ago that this thing was discovered, but the paper sites 19 years of data, and does a nice job of showing that there has been inconstant accretion methods and rates from two different methods of accretion. It's a nice insight into the details of something we just take for granted (accretion from a disk).
