    However, I'm finding it hard to find anything online that wants to actually help me except for the tutorial from MacWorld 06. Any pointers for a good tutorial website or some code I can play around with?

    Do you have particular tasks in mind? If not, it's pretty hard to pick a place to start.

    The general syntax of applescript is fairly easy. Don't start by reading this, but the language reference is here:
    http://developer.apple.com/document...eScriptLangGuide/introduction/ASLR_intro.html

    Otherwise, grab some sample scripts from here:
    http://developer.apple.com/applescript/

    And start playing with them. As I said, it would be best if you picked some trivial task you wanted to script with applescript, try to do it, and post what you have and questions here when you have trouble.
