Stanislav Ilyin

Martin! Thank you very much for this publication! I think that Stanislav will be pleased by it very much and it brings him new energy to improve the program and the interface, which is not perfect, I agree (but it is definitely of it own style). The only mistake you made is by identifying Stanislav. This program was created and is developed by Stanislav Ilyin (not Petrov, the riichi player whom you'll see soon in Hanover) way) from the city of Krasnoyarsk, some 4000 km east from Moscow (: http://www.mahjong.ru/images/stories/msk09/PA244023_1.jpg

No need to tank me, Mark! It is Stanislav who did a great job.
I am sorry about the mistake with his name, have corrected that now.
Greetings - Martin
