    First you post a link to some crappy article about Address Book (again, who cares?), now you follow it up with a link to a crappy Automator tutorial! Well at least this one is better than Address Book, and more useful… but honestly nobody uses Automator either!

    Get back to the useful tips please, I don’t care about these two craps

    RipRoarinRapids: If you’re not interested, don’t read it. Quit the damn nagging and get on with it.

  3. Wow! This came at the right time. Earlier this morning I was dumping applications that I never even touched since purchasing my 17″ MacBook Pro this past October; however, I hung onto Automater since I know I could really use it. In fact, this morning I told myself I would learn how to use it. I’ll be reading this when I’m on vacation this coming week.
