"Baldur's Gate and suchlike are trademarks of BioWare, and the totally awesome contest that is the Iron Mods are not endorsed, supported, and probably not even known about by BioWare."

I couldn't have said it better myself.

If we ever have an Iron ReadMe contest, I'd totally have it in the bag.

That is so true.  I've enjoyed reading your ReadMes more than playing some mods.  ;D

Only "some" mods, St. Jo?  Pirates don't cry often, but I think this situation may very well warrant such a response.

Oh, come on, Ghrey! Don't be so needy! You know you've got the ReadMe action wrapped up! Yep, yep, those are some fine-looking ReadMes!  :pirate

Nope, I use PFE for my readmes.  It's like notepad, but you have to be a scoundrel to use it.

I was amazed that Microsoft managed to introduce a bug into Notepad when they released Windows 2000 (and it's still there).  Using CTRL_S to save your document can make Notepad think the line ends before it really does, and you need to bring the next line back up to fix the problem.... damned irritating for a keyboard commando like myself.

Yeh, I think I've been noticing something like that. Saving tends to put the cursor in random places or something. Wow.
