but my antique machine was unable to read the paper cited, so I'm actually
not sure it's the right one (which provides an empirical estimate for the
cosmological constant of 0.7). Dr Lineweaver tells me:

The scientific paper which reports my result is
Astrophysical Journal Letters, vol 505, L69 (Oct 1, 1998).
Although most of the work and calculations were based on detailed
observations of cosmic microwave background, it is only when
this data is combined with other data that the important
result emerges.
The other data are
1) Supernovae 1a
2) galaxy cluster mass to light ratios
3) double lobed radio sources.
