Luddite has kGTD & Quicksilver question

So I have been stumbling around in kGTD, 43 Folders, OmniPro land and am impressed, overwhelmed, and seduced by the vision of a promised land of a totally dovetailed & coherent organizational system whose outlines I only dimly understand.

I bought my Mac, bought my OmniFocus Pro, downloaded QS (was starting to feel smug), finally installed kGTD and have been totally derailed by the following instruction from kinkless kGTD:

If you plan on using the QS action, you should probably cover your bases by recompiling it. Open the Quicksilver action: ~/Library/Application Support/Quicksilver/Actions/Send to kGTD.scpt in script editor (just double clicking on it should do the trick, hit “compile” and then save.

Here are my incredibly remedial questions: How do I do that? Where precisely should I open my QS action? I can't find it in either the script editor or the QS and the script editor won't let me type or copy in the command as written above? What am I doing wrong??? Thank you for any help you all can provide.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
