so, what problem is this solving?
Authored by: atnbueno on Jul 01, '11 11:06:29AM

Perhaps I should have been more terse with the ingredients (as in "AutoHotkey in Windows, FastScripts in OS X and Dropbox in both") but I think the first sentence is quite clear about the goal, and I wanted to illustrate where the idea had come from. Also, FastScripts is not the only program that allows you to define keyboard shortcuts in OS X.

I discarded Synergy not because I have anything against it (in fact I think it's an amazing piece of software) but because using another client/server just for a shared clipboard seemed too much, specially when I already had one (Dropbox) that allowed me to avoid setting up configurations, permissions, firewall exceptions, ... and also, don't forget, I wanted it tweakable.

I think it's a question of starting points: I regularly use AutoHotkey in Windows, and Dropbox everywhere. And Applescript comes with OS X. A total of 3.25 KiB (almost half of that being comments) is not a Rube Goldberg contraption (I had to look what was that :-D).
