10.6: Gather Finder Items with a new Service
Authored by: Frederico on Mar 14, '11 11:43:00PM

Folder Actions are somewhat intriguing, thanks for the suggestion.

I already make extensive use of FA in many other tasks; I had not considered it for the Trash and yanking .IPA files. The thing is, I tend to be selective on which IPAs I actually save; many times I really don't care to archive every single version of every single app. By reviewing it manually each time, I only select and archive those which matter.

It would take only a bit of adjustment, I think, to know that *ALL* IPAs are being archived, and force myself to review the actual archives once a week or so to cull the chaff and prevent wasted disk and Time Machine space.

I'll report back if I get a functional FA working with the Trash.
