I know this side of the shac very well and would love this feature.

    There are no end of lua tutorials on the web. If you have any programming experience picking up lua won't be that hard. You can install lua on a Mac or PC to play around and get the hang of it. Then just start writing some simple scripts for the SHAC to say respond to a GA and do something.

    You are much more likely to get help if you have a go and then ask questions on code you have written rather than just expecting someone to write it for you.
