So I figured I would finally delve into Automater a bit because hey it's on my computer and maybe it will make things easier. So I decided a good task would be to get a list of birthdays for the month. Here is my workflow and the output text... which... makes no sense. Any ideas? My system language isn't set to whatever Asian language is put in the text file. I have birthdays in my address book which then show up in iCal.
