Randomly selects layers. There's 4 options for how many layers are selected randomly:  You can randomly select most of the layers, many of the layers, not many and finally you can have it randomly select very few of the layers.

The most, many, not many and very few selection works by first randomly picking layers from the whole set.  This result is what you get when you select 1 (most).  If you select 2 (many of the layers), the random function is run again on the 1st selection, so it essentially randomly selects layers from the previously randomly selected layers. Options 3 and 4 simply run the function that many more times.  I thought that was a neat solution so i thought i'd share it for those of you that can't read what a script is doing.

Similar to NthLayerSelector it will randomly select from a selection of layers or from all the layers in the comp if no layers are originally selected.

    DuplicateLayers-n-UpdateExpressions

    Duplicates the selected layers and if any of the layers have expressions referencing any of the layers being duplicated it will update the expressions to point to the newly duplicated layers. Might make more sense if you watch the demo :-)

    Load Project or Template at Startup

    Will launch a project or template every time your start After Effects. For example, if you have a certain folder/file structure you like to keep for your AE projects, you can setup a virgin project the way you like it and save it as a template by giving it a .aet extension. Now every time you launch AE your custom setup will be automatically loaded.
