In this brief report I will review the results on this fascinating pulsating subdwarf B star we obtained in 2004 and 2005. We can easily see why this star was called the "star of the moment" (SDK, La Palma, 2006). Also, having data spanning over six years, we can try to see if there is a noticeable period change in any of the detected big amplitude modes.
