HST cutouts, smooth fits to LRGs

We cut out small postage stamps on all HST images (downloaded so far) of LRGs. Downloading continues as we blog. We got Burles's and Bolton's bspline image fitting code up and running (though we found a small bug).

I tried not to become enraged about the fact that ACS WCS header information is not correct!. It is our bound duty to fix this as soon as astrometry.net is off the ground.

Anatoly Spitkovsky gave a great talk on pulsar emission using force-free electrodynamics; he opined that full 3d time-dependent simulations would soon be possible.
