Gee, thanks. :^)

Mostly looks plausible. But:

I would say those end sectors on partitions 1 and 2 should be one less 
than the following partition's start sector. The end sector of partition 
3 looks correct; though the last sector on the disk is 143380479, when 
you round down to a cylinder boundary you end up at 143380124.
