      My sincere congratulations, POMESTNIK Nikulai Ivanovich! As a Kingdom
      Chronicler, the William Blackfox awards are very important to me, and
      I'm very pleased to see a SIG member on the winners list!

      Oh, Nikulai, you give them TOO much credit. They didn't just butcher
      the usage, they mis-spelled it to boot! For shame to my fellow
      Chroniclers for changing Pomestnik to "Pemestaik" !!!

      But that aside, congratulations again Nikulai.
