My First Applescript

I end up downloading a lot of “stuff” – documents from various places on campus, trial utilities, software updates, etc.

While I save the downloads to /Users/me/Downloads instead of the desktop, I often get lost in the leftover download detritus of stuff I still want to get to, but haven’t. So I’ve been wanting some kind of rudimentary ability to file my downloads to some appropriate directory.

Hence my first Applescript – taking advantage of the really cool folder actions feature in Macintosh OS X (Panther).

I’m not sure I like Applescript all that much (like compared to Perl or PHP) – but it’ll do.
