That is absolutely incredible. I have always been very curious about Apple Script, and now this makes me want to learn it even more.

Time to get a book!

My Toyota truck got stolen last monday here in Caracas (Venezuela) I didn't had any apple scrip in it =(. That truck was something, I loved it. I wish I can find it again.

I think apple should have some sort of marketing slogan for this story. Any ideas?

I'll start the ball rolling with

"iMac bites....thieving scumbags in the ass!" ;)

the honors for this story do not go to apple script but more to Timbuktu, which is a hell of great program ... i would be lost without it ...
