I think it's about time to set out on the next of these. Russian is not my forte, but I'm excited to learn about it.

As a note, I used the template to create this post, and it still doesn't show the new 128kb part of the file name. I changed it above.

Yes we know. Can't edit the code at the moment due to the way it was set up for translations into other languages.

Meanwhile, I'll MC for you.
