Create Growl alerts for Address Book contacts' birthdays
Authored by: mmnw on Mar 11, '10 07:43:40AM
You could use Growl's AppleScript Additions instead of growlnotify. The necessary documentation should have been installed with your Growl installation. This would also address your problems with GrowlHelperApp not being loaded, as AppleScript would wait for GrowlHelperApp to be loaded as soon as it finds a tell application "GrowlHelperApp".
Also installing it as a login item isn't a good idea in every case. Many people never logout their account. For example on my MacBook Pro I never ever log out or shut down (except for updates). I just close the lid and send it sleeping.
A better solution would probably be to install the Script as a repeating LaunchAgent via launchctl or Lingon.
