Idaltu? I don't think I'd ever heard of that. It must really be new! Thanks for it!

(But I'm sure there's some reason why it's "weak." My sixth sense is telling me. I'm getting a feeling everyting on this thread is going to be "weak" for as long as someone's convenience demands it.)

There's a freeper named Ahban who has at times staked a lot on this kind of thing not existing, so I have to ping him here.
