Nice data, did you do all this manually on paper or with the help of a calculator? :-) What happended to the 22 IRT missing matches you mentioned?

We have a bank of super-computers and a staff of trained baboons to operate them.

Hey Evan! Love this stuff; if you don't mind I would like to try to incorporate some of these ideas for the big database at large. Do you mind if I steal some of your ideas for the database? I'll credit you as the "creator" of the reports...
