The Mac Migration

The journey of a rabid PC user into the land of OS X. This is not a blog about "why" you should switch. It is a guide for those who "have" switched.

Some KisMAC automation (using applescript)

It's ugly but it works. I am still having the problem with MACJack stopping scans if the queue overflows:
"MACJack: MACJackCard::_handleRx: packet queue overflow"
So I wrote a simple simple applescript (actually most of it is borrowed from the kisMAC svn server's examples.
It mostly works

repeat
tell application "KisMAC"
activate
startScan
end tell
delay 360
end repeat

This is an infinte loop that will activate every five minutes. If this value is set too low then KisMAC will constantly keep focus making it impossible to use other applications. If you come up with something please let me know!
