You're absolutely right !

While I was writing this post yesterday, I realized that the {'ej DaH}
was wrong, but because I *really* needed to sleep, I wrote it anyway;
may qeylIS forgive me..

Now, after 8 hours of shut-eye, and a coffee powerful enough to wake
the dead, I realize that I could write just {DaH}.
