Before anyone starts accusing the author of the Urox writeup (that would be me) of a complete and utter cock-up in writing "styrman" (Steer-man) for the devotees of Urox, I'd like to point out in my defense that I used the Anglo-Saxon word "Styrman" which means "To storm, rage, roar, cry out, shout". And the pronunciation is "Sturman" (even shading into "Storman"), not "Steerman". Steer-man was just a happy coincedence :-).

It is by my order and for the good of the state that the bearer of this has done what he has done.
