    Most of it yeah. When Russians speak quickly, it's still too difficult for me to understand. However because this was a television broadcast, the pace was comparably slow-to-not-so-slow and the enunciation was quite clear, especially on the part of the guy doing the interviewing. Thus I could understand most all of it. There was, however, one section where you spoke a bit fast for me and there was the noise of the car, but it sounded like you compared the handling of your M21 to a boat. Did I understand that correctly?

    And the clip where the two folk in the mini-van drove up, stopped and complimented your Volga was cool.

    Hahaha! "some BS like that" ... you're alright Dmitri! (I have a really cool smiley that I will put here later)

    And here is that smiley: it's a "don't poop" smiley, meaning keep-it-clean. Somehow seems appropriate here. That or I just wanted an excuse to use it.

    I'd like to, but no can do. I said that I'd get this done and so it shall be!

    Besides, I have repaired the large, gaping holes in the Lefora data and even found a way to include the smilies too, so it'd be a shame to let all of that work go to waste. As we speak I am writing the high-level code that will be the architect of the migration. The fine-level details are complete.

    Thanks,
