I’ve been programming around a little yesterday and made my first simple LSL-script – a notecard giver keeping track of unique visitors. Really simple when you get the heck off it and quite useful for different things, not so far fetched to turn it into a greeter, visitor counter and other things, also or make it into a big whole-into-one-package.
What bothers me, though, is that LSL is unable to save data into a notecard stored into the object. This seems to be really a big drawback of the language – hopefully there is going to be some support for this in the future. So, in the meantime, you have to save data – if you need it – on external webservers with llHTTPRequest() – seems that’s the only possibility when you don’t want to use instant messages or open chat, to have a nice formatted file of data. Bummer.
I hate that!
