    It looks like the case for primordial black holes as dark matter is drawing to a close: http://arxiv.org/abs/1401.3025, Exclusion of the remaining mass window for primordial black holes as the dominant constituent of dark matter.

    Another excellent find! thank you Chronos. there is some synergy, so to speak, with that other paper you found about annual variation in apparent DM particle detections. Interesting developments!

    I'm retired, so I have way too much spare time. But, yes, this is all fascinating [to me], and the sum of the parts appears to paint a bigger picture.
