Thanks for the reminder Boots, I was waiting to get the "Le Chat Noir" achievement all sorted out, but there is no reason to wait on "The Write Stuff".

Please remind me about this if I don't get it done by Tuesday (because once CASP 10 starts I will surely forget!)

@AsDawnBreaks: Yes, having one of your solutions/recipes used as a result in a paper.
