There is a pernicious inter-period short of 250-270K in October. You may recall I presented what I thought was a structural period-to-period short figure of 470-480K. The balance of 490K during the October 15 period could be related to the conversion of the preferred stock into common stock. 490K of preferred shares were converted in Q3 per the filing.
