Automate an Internet content filter

I also had a hard time getting the script to work and I don't think I quite understood how to install the key-chain thingy... help!

Once you've downloaded Usable Keychain Scripting and double-clicked on the .dmg file, go to Finder, click on the disk image named "UKS 1.0b3" in the left column, and there you will find a file named "Usable Keychain Scripting." To install, drag it to any folder on your computer. I keep mine in /System Folder/Scripting Additions/.


If you really don't want to deal with keychains, you could just save your admin password in the script itself, though I would not recommend it. In that case you could delete all the code from

tell application "Usable Keychain Scripting" 
all the way up to, but not including
tell application "SelfControl" to activate
and replace it with this line:
set myPass to "yourpassword"

Keep in mind "yourpassword" must be replaced with your admin password. It's simple, but dangerous, as it leaves your password out in the open. You might want to change the permissions of the directory containing your script to be only readable by you.

When I click on Usable Keychain Scripting nothing happens.

I have placed in in a folder under documents. I click... nothing. But if I try to delete it... it says it's running.

Dunno where tho.

Can someone explain?

That's all you need to do. You don't need to run it. Just drop it somewhere on your computer, and your applescript will automagically find it.
