IR Gem superhumps

   Kasai-san and Tamas Tordai have reported observations.
The object showed well-developed superhumps.
The observations were almost simultaneous.
While it was fine that both sets of observations
were cross checked, it looks somewhat redundant
for such a bright and relatively well observed
object.  Since this object may have a chance to
receive attention, I would suggest to search for
other more meaningful objects, and return to this
object when conditions are not favorable for
fainter ones.  For studying O-C variations of IR Gem,
one superhump timing per night is sufficient.
