My Lion-ready scripts for routing junk mail to the FTC’s site still work, but I have a high crash rate when using Mail Act-On 3.x to initiate that script. The crash logs say that MAO is to blame for the crash, and perhaps that is so. But it also feels like I’m screaming into the… Continue reading No Future Support for Junk Mail Scripting
This is a nerdy post. I’m telling you that before you get sucked in. In short, I use my computer, which resides in my office, to send a continuous alarm to a set of speakers in my bedroom. I do this with a couple of AppleScripts and a cronjob. If what I said made you… Continue reading ‘Cause Waking Up Is Hard to Do

Here’s the change: tell application “Mail” set theMessages to the selection repeat with thisMessage in theMessages set newMessage to make new outgoing message… Continue reading Update to my Spam-Reporting AppleScripts
