... as to what happened to "Explosive." Two things:
1. I came within two miles of being run over by a rather large tornado. Needed to stop for a couple of days.
2. Vista finally let me load "Baldur's Gate" onto my computer. Been trying to do that for six months. No idea what changed, but as I have access again, I'm playing. :D
Never fear, I'll be coming back to it. Eventually.
