All I really want out of AppleScript right now was available years ago in a product called MacroMaker.

Remember that?

There was a little cassette icon in the menu bar. You choose "Record" and it starts recording what you do. You choose "Stop", assign a key combination, and ba-da-bing! you can reply that task whenever you want.

People keep talking about how A.S. automates your tasks. But it's more trouble to learn to write the code than it is to repeatedly do the task itself. MacroMaker was such a beautiful little tool. I wonder if they'll ever put this type of ease into A.S....
