Yes, I have long wanted to "explore" your stuff. But here is my  
problem: I tend to break things (E.g. when I walk into a bank, a  
couple of minutes later everything has come to a standstill.) So, I  
need to wait until I have an extended period of time so as to have a  
reasonable chance of repairing the damages. But I will, I will. Real  
Soon Now.
