It is just as well that I not recount my further explorations into 
"Powernaut.Com".  They are truly a secretive group, and they've left no 
evidence I can share now.  The most I can say is, their members seemed 
to be Latino.

However, I am about to publicize "Who Are the Powernauts?"  So I went 
looking, and found a "Powernauts.Com" (plural).  They are based in 
Singapore, and they are publishing a math proficiency game for children. 
  Apparently this is mostly aimed at the Spanish-speaking world. 
Disponible en Google Play!

If I were aiming the Powernaut at the Spanish-speaking world, I'd call 
him "Poderador".  So I went looking for "".  No such thing. 
  The closest thing I got to that, is a Brazilian article titled "O 
Poderador".  It basically said, "Oh Power-wielder, stop suppressing the 
arts in our province."  (Oddly, I have been to the Brazilian province 
they mentioned.  I was on tour.)

For what it's worth, Google translated Poderador as Power.  That's like 
translating Conquistador as Conquest.
