You're a nice and dedicated person. Thanks for the great results! ;)
I'm sure that you only need a bit of promotion to be a top notch reference engine.

All the best open-source libraries assembled into a friendly surface. With a Lua (simple, yet powerful) managed scripting.

Too good to be true. But is real and 100% free. :D
