Heh. Haukur thought he'd gain an edge on my superior knowledge of
languages by doing some Old English. Seems to have paid off for the
fellow; I should note that in the 13th century ON we're teaching here,
it's "Ver heill" not "Ves...". Let's not be inconsistent, tsk tsk ;)

Anyway, apologies to <anonymous> of the Valfreya Kindred for my
misnomer :)
