Can anyone out there offer an explaination of particle systems in laymens'
terms?  Don't expect to understand them fully enough to be designing my
own... seems over my head.  But maybe some background on how the whole thing
works?

Thanks,
Dayv

If you want I can write and provide you a very basic scene to start with. Do you?

Sure!  Like I've said, I'm not very skilled, but I have an insatiable
curiosity.  :)

There's a little bit of information on my own particle system on this page:
http://rsj.mobilixnet.dk/3d/anims/particlesystem/particlesystem.html

Don't know if that's what you're looking for though...

Have you "released" it yet or is it still under development?
