Who says crime doesn’t pay? Our final script pickpockets old ladies when we’re not even at our Mac.
Recently, we’ve gotten into a few Web-based role-playing games that remind us of the ones we used to play on old-school dial-up BBSes.

Lua is a powerful, fast, light-weight, embeddable scripting language.
