By day, I am the Director of Publishing Technology at Jones & Bartlett Learning. I spend most of my time in Xcode and Applescript.

At night, I am a degree candidate at Harvard University, Extension School working towards a Bachelor of Liberal Arts with a concentration in Computer Science.

The rest of the time, such as it is, I futz around with my website, Oatmeal & Coffee.

comment Can anyone recommend a good tutorial for writing (from scratch) a cron-style launchd job?
In a funny bit of irony, three years later I need to implement a cron/launchd process myself and found myself looking at this question again in a completely different light. Stack Overflow has a mixed opinion about what to do with launchd questions, but they really don't like these questions. Just thought the whole situation was amusing. +1

comment How to get the path of the selected Image in Adobe Bridge via Applescript?
@myhd: See my answer to your question on SO, but I agree that the functionality is broken (intentionally or otherwise) for Bridge.

comment OS X Lion Excel 2011 data lost and undeletable Excel file
I would imagine some kind of file recovery software would help with getting those files visible, but there is no guarantee you would be able to open them and find anything useful.
