Apologies for how far out-of-date we are with the confirmations. I know it must seem like I have been ignoring the project, but I promise I have not! I regularly check in on the page to make sure things are running ok. But I have had a number of things over the past few weeks that kept me from doing confirmations. Thankfully that has now cleared up somewhat, so I'm very glad to present some new comets!

**SOHO-4390 and 4391 were the two objects I mentioned last time that were discovered via the NASA/TopCoder Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning challenge. Names of the discoverers are as follows: Daniel Parrott, Selim Seferbekov, John Gardner, Victor Dumov, Roman Solovyev, and Dmitrii Khrustalev. These are all first-time comet discoverers, so many congratulations to them!
I realize I have another long backlog of archive reports to go through. I will do those next but wanted to get the realtime discoveries back up-to-date first. Next week I plan to dedicate a significant portion of my time to doing just that! As always, email me with any questions, comments, corrections, etc.
