    Hey guys,

    I made an extensive work flow using automator. One of the actions checks the size of a given folder every 3 seconds until the file size remains constant for more then 3 seconds. It then tells the work flow to continue. Basically, if I'm copying something into the folder, then action allows the work flow to wait until it is done copying before moving on. The problem is that it is not very reliable, as automator usually is. However, I was wondering if there was a way to write an applescript that would do the same thing. That way I could still incorporate it into my work flow. Any ideas?
