Yes, sorry, you're right. That was the tail end of any number of things 
I tried. I started out with:

start using stack url 
"https://www.domain.com/folder/myScript.livecodescript"

And then tried a bunch of other things which all failed with "can't find 
stack".

So I tried plain old "go stack url <url>" and got "error in statement". 
It's an https URL on Dropbox, and a script-only stack besides. Maybe one 
of those things matters.
