Send SMS to Messages and run commands with AppleScript
Authored by: ~Coxy on Nov 01, '12 05:59:41PM

This hint is a pretty good idea (beats the heck out of SSHing back into the computer on a phone keyboard), but what is the best way to send messages to the Mac?

Is it possible to use iMessage to send a message to yourself that the Mac will get and act upon?

And then in the script, is it possible to check the name of the sender to make sure that only messages from your account are used to issue commands?
