    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!

    Can we do that with my car?

    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!" ;)

    tim book 2

    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 ...
