Yes, but not with Automator. I run a Java app to update it every 20 minutes or so. it's still a work in progress - it's been running in various forms for less than 48 hours. I want to make sure it's useful but doesn't use much bandwidth (don't want to get in trouble). As it is, only a few hundred bytes are sent several times an hour, so I don't think that anyone would care.carpe diem said:Thats a good idea, by the way how do you change your location is it automated?
If you dig into it, it's actually pretty cool - for example, you can add stuff to the Finder's right-click pop-up, which in a sense integrates it with the OS. But, yeah, it's still a bit rough.max_altitude said:Very freaky....I was just asking myself the same question a moment before i saw this thread.
I have never used automater, because I just don't seem to have a need for it. Maybe it needs to be more integrated into the actual OS rather than a separate program?
Same here. I've tried to rummage through it and find some rewarding use from it, but come up dry. Even searching for Automator in the hallowed Forums of Macrumors reads like a thread list of the unengaged.mad jew said:It's certainly not useless, but I still don't think it's as easy to use as Apple would have us believe. Or maybe that's just because I'm a little slow...
I don't really use it all that much personally.
