How do I use it?

Just add this script to the end of yours and set the four variables shown below.

scriptName: Your scripts name, this is shown to the user in the alert but not used by the script itself.
scriptId: This is the number that is assigned to your script on the userscripts.org website. To find it, go to your script and look in the address bar, you'll see it at the end of the address.
scriptVersion: The version of your script, decimals are supported but NO letters.
scriptUpdateText: The text shown to users when they hit the "more info" link in the alert.

Please let me know if you use this and what you think of it!
