Mount multiple iDisks using AppleScript Apps
I have several different iDisks and wanted to create scripts to automatically mount each iDisk. Here's what I came up with, and it seems to work well. Copy and paste the following into ScriptEditor, and replace the references to username and password with your iDisk account information. Save the script with a unique name, and each of your iDisks is now a double-click away.
tell application "Finder"
mount volume "afp://idisk.mac.com/username" as user name
"username" with password "password"
end tell
[Editor's note: In case it doesn't come out correctly, the symbol after "as user name" is the Script Editor's line break symbol, entered with option-return. The 'mount' command is one line; it's broken up here for narrower display width.]

webdav or plain old idisk mounting?

Much the same result can be acheived, albeit without the cool applescript, by dragging a mounted iDisk to the finder tool bar. Unfortunately one still gets the old "user inactivity" warning this way. Does the applescript solve that? Just curious.

This is old-style...

So you'd still get the warning. I'm not sure about connecting to multiple WebDAV idisks.
