How to fire an event when the project has loaded

eToys to the rescue: Cmd-Click on the desktop to get the halos, open the 
viewer for the world, create a new script, set its trigger to "opening". 
Click on the little checkmark that says "toggle between showing tiles 
and showing textual code"; type in the code you want, accept it. Close 
the scriptor by clicking on the [o] button, close the viewer too. 
Publish your project. The next time you open it your code will be run.
