The real me
April Fools

I love finding useful scripts here in the Wiki, but most of them are aimed at AWESOME scripters, not beginners. I use this page to store handy scripts & links to helpful pages ... like the Scripts Library & this link to Fred Gandt's awesome userpage with tons of free scripts - especially stuff with string sorting.

The 2008 me

I rezzed 6400 days ago and learn something new every day.

I edited a series of half-finished old tutorials called LSL 101 - and got thru 'em all July 7, 2012. Working on an addon page on Operators & Flow Control in my sandbox. July 28, 2012.

I suggest new users check out LSL Style Guide on this wiki.
