Fun with scripts:
1. When I was 10 the kid down the street called me up -- or rather his mother did. She wanted me to check out the airplane detector he had built. So I went down there and he showed me his invention: an antenna attached to two wires.
"Hold the wires together with your fingers, and when a plane passes over, your hand gets warm."
I remember telling him off -- how there was no way that was gonna work. I then taught him how to explode bugs with a magnifying glass. Now that is science.
The point? If your gonna write a script to solve a problem, make sure you know what the problem is, and test to make sure the script actually solves the problem. Everyone seems to love "lag-reducing" scripts that only increase the trouble in the world.
