See http://lua-users.org/wiki/LuaUsersLottery about how to win an
opportunity to lose money (and help support lua-users.org).
The lua-users.org site has been around for almost a year now, and the
domain registration is up for renewal. I'm happy to continue paying and
take the credit, but I have a feeling that others would also like to
show their support. The drawing will be on Thursday/Friday (depending
on your time zone) of the coming week.
The lottery system has a few flaws, like the random function depends on
the C library on the server (preventing independent verification), and
it may be a hassle for someone outside the US to make a payment. Anyway
I thought this was more fun than saying "first one to send me an email...".
Lastly, I've revealed that I don't mind using Lua for system scripting,
as long as the code is _inside_ the system script and not making any
system calls :-)
