I have only been tinkering with Lua since the 5.x versions, however, I am
tempted to download and take a look at the older versions of Lua and see how
the language has progressed since v1.0!

I know I have probably said this before, but thanks for making Lua an open
source project. I have really enjoyed hacking Lua and have learned quite a
bit by reading the Lua source code. :)

I have always wanted my own programming language, but really didn't know
where to start... Lua was a fantastic launching point for that endeavour!
