          For researchers on the List who don't read Russian, you can get a
          (crude) idea of Dybo's obituary using the Russian-to-English
          translation tools at sites like Systran:

          Just cut and paste the URL posted by Pavel:

          http://www.livejournal.com/users/chingachguk/101179.html?#cutid1

          into the Systran website (slower but more reliable than Babelfish,
          which uses the same translation engine):

          http://www.systransoft.com/index.html

          You'll get the usual oddities expected from machine translations (e.g.,
          the first line that oddly reads "on 53- will eat to the year of life" =
          "died in the 53d year of his life") but if you know anything about
          Starostin's work in comparative linguistics, you can get useful
          information even from the machine translation.

          For Starostin's work on the "Tower of Babel" project, which includes a
          number of invaluable research tools in comparative linguistics, see:
