EDIT #1: Since I was in a rush this morning and did not post the image containing the names, you can view it by clicking here. Thanks goes to ASMzine for sending me the image yesterday (I would have put it up the news yesterday, but since my laptop is busted, I do not have regular access to my computer now and did not know they had sent the image to me until I checked my e-mail this morning at school). :p
With my laptop in the shop right now (and it supposedly will be for several weeks), updating is going to be hard and not as frequent.
