Hah. You almost got me there. Made my head spin a little.
To convert from seconds per second to parts per billion, the numerator gets multiplied by a billion. 
(technically the denominator gets multiplied too, but the billion is folded into the unit),
i.e. the billion in the denominator is implicit.

We actually do have a second and third data point:
	the first test with Adams calculated guess
	the test with the maximum adjustsment

I will dig out the emails with those results when I have time,
and when I have recovered some from the math fatigue :)

hopefully they are linear.
