that time of year again. currently running approximately 1214 ephemerides from 29-Oct-2006 (end of DST) to 03-Nov-2007 (DST ends 04-Nov-2007). usually run one time change at a time (STANDARD=5 months; DST=7 months); however, switchover to new 2007 DST schedule (Energy Policy Act of 2005|text) extends DST by four weeks. instead of running 4 months, decided to take the hit now & do an entire year. in 2007, DST begins second Sunday of March & ends first Sunday of November, which could be a temporary or permanent change (noticed Astrodienst hasn't plugged in new US schedule for free charts yet). SEC. 110. DAYLIGHT SAVINGS.

(c) Report to Congress- Not later than 9 months after the effective date stated in subsection (b), the Secretary [of Energy] shall report to Congress on the impact of this section on energy consumption in the United States.

(d) Right to Revert- Congress retains the right to revert the Daylight Saving Time back to the 2005 time schedules once the Department study is complete.

biggest houses are 8 to 12. should have houses 1, 8, 9, 10, 11 & 12 completed by friday & rest by monday. once all ephemerides run, delimit columns by Tabs & import to Excel. once columns formatted, paste each asteroid's data into appropriate house lookup table. basically, if i do everything right in lookup tables then i don't have to fuck up eight transit spreadsheets. currently, lookup tables start at 27-Aug-2005 to 29-Oct-06 = 429 days. since i haven't done cycles #35 & #36 yet, need to start at 14-Oct-2006 to 03-Nov-07 = 386 days. K.I.S.S. probably plug in 14-Oct-2006 to 03-Nov-07 & keep lookup range at 429.

also checking whether unnumbered objects have been numbered. discovered A/CC Catchall Catalog "withdrawn as being seriously out-of-date, incomplete, and without prospect". removing Catchall links on cycle #35 & from natal report later.
