Dear CBAers,

Greg Bolt has found a very short period (~1 hour) in this star, which 
appears to be an outbursting dwarf nova of some type.  By virtue of that 
period, it's pow'f'l interesting!  And a decently good sky position for 
all hemispheres too.

And SDSS1524+22 continues to evolve, and superhump, and eclipse.  Follow 
till the last photon disappears from your telescope.
