I almost missed that one myself too.  That's why I finally decided to
get so detailed, to find little things like that.  I also found a few bugs
in mine as well by doing this exercise (although I had the advantage
of fixing mine before anybody could see :)

I assume that will be a really easy fix for you.  But, I am using it the
right way though, aren't I?
