The "custom" pulsar database included is from the ATNF Pulsar Catalogue, so thanks to all that awesome work. Read more in the article Manchester, R. N., Hobbs, G. B., Teoh, A. & Hobbs, M., Astron. J., 129, 1993-2006 (2005) (astro-ph/0412641), which gives a full description of the catalogue, or visit http://www.atnf.csiro.au/research/pulsar/psrcat.
