I looked at the included Snak script, and added to the keyword notifier area of the script a couple of keywords I thought I might want to be notified about. Ok cool, so far so good.
Now I wondered how to get Snak to pay attention to it (I've never actually used an AppleScript with Snak, be it the bundled scripts or user installed, never touched it ). Simply drop it in Snak's "Scripts" folder? Hm, no. Is there a Scripts menu in the app itself? Er not there either I guess.
So, I finally RTFM and discovered I was supposed to drop it in Snak's "Scripts" folder and then type /load [script name] in the Snak command line. Piece of cake. So I /load Growl.scpt and (hooray!!) GrowlSnak appears in my Growl apps list!
Now maybe I'll try receiving a /msg... or typing a line of text that includes my nick or one of the keywords I included in the script. You know, to see if I could actually see a Snak Growl notification in action. This is where it all came crashing down. If I tried any of the above things (getting /msg'd, receiving a line of text with my own nick or with one of the other keywords I specified), Snak would just churn out the error

No degree of fiddling around has fixed it. I did once manage to make it horribly worse, splattering my chat window with a stream of pure evil which somewhat resembled...

After deleting my mangled version of the script and reverting to a clean one from the Growl DMG it's not doing that anymore at least, but is still returning the "script error occurred when trying to call the privmsg event handler" error I listed above.
For the record, I did get the Firefox download notification plugin working (which means, I assume, that my attempt to install growlnotify on my machine was successful). I've got no clue at all if that is necessary to get the Snak script to work, but I figured I might as well point that out ahead of time just in case the first response to my obvious newb problem is "Have you installed growlnotify?" Like, if that's the "rebuild the desktop" of the Growl world, I want to have my bases covered... or at least that one base. A base.
Anyway, thanks for the help if you guys can provide it (from the other posts in here you seem a friendly bunch), and please excuse my sorry ramblings. Daylight Savings Time has ruined me.
