AppleScript Easter Egg: Nothing to see here; move along.

In honor of AppleScript's 20th birthday (it was introduced at WWDC 1993), here's a little Easter Egg to share.

1. Create an empty text file.

2. Change the extension of the text file to .sdef (an AppleScript terminology file)

3. Drag the .sdef file onto AppleScript Editor

AppleScript Editor displays an empty dictionary window, stating "Nothing to see here; move along."
