Sometimes having two Finder windows open to the same folder comes in handy. This script should as well because it tells the Finder to do just that.
Open in AppleScript Editor.app
tell application "Finder"
set this_folder to folder of window 1
make new Finder window to this_folder
Also a part of NewHere.
After a week of no “real” site, we are back in personal, non-business. One filesystem failure is all it takes to nearly wipeout you and your backup. I don’t think any photos I’ve uploaded have survived. I’ll have a look later. Eventually.
This is used to take selected e-mails, the contents of which are auto generated web form submissions, and parse them for the mailing address using AppleScript’s text item delimiters.

This would of course go into your user defined CSS file. Which in Safari can be added at Safari > Preferences | Advanced – Style sheet:
This is a workaround for the Finder insisting on starting a search of the entire HDD on every new search rather than the good ol’ days of 10.3 which was to search in the directory you were staring at. I know you can click a button to switch it, but every time? No, I like the old way better.
An AppleScript to replace spaces (‘ ‘) with underscore (‘_’) in names of files selected in the Finder. It does not do folders, but should be easy enough to modify so it can.
What a pile. All it is is a web browser. That’s pretty much it. And a poor one at that.
- It installs games as hidden files not applications.
- It runs a process named ‘ipcserver’ that remains alive after you quit the client.
- The UI is non/sub-standard.
- It doesn’t clean up after itself if you relaunch after force quitting it which then prevents it from starting* (though the ‘ipcserver’ seems to have no trouble starting).
To overcome that last item (which throws an error stating “steam engine instance already exists”) you have to manually remove a couple of files from /private/tmp. In Terminal type rm /private/tmp/*-steam-mstr-* and press return, then launch Steam.
*[UPDATE] Newer clients (the About window doesn’t actually list a version. More Steam on Mac “goodness” 😐 ) will launch after a force quit by apparently recycling the left over files which needed to be removed manually before.
An AppleScript that will export the image file associated with an entry in Address Book.
An AppleScript (app) to duplicate any file you’ve added to its list to the folder of the frontmost Finder window.
An AppleScript to generate a numbering table in comma separated value format. Works great with InDesign's data merge function.
