Preserve 'my card' in Address Book after iSync over .mac
Authored by: webBarista on Nov 19, '03 03:46:01PM

This script is fantastic. This is the exact problem I was having between my Mac and my wife's laptop. I was within hours of removing Address Book syncing from from her laptop until I figured out how to script this on my own. Now I don't have too. Even seems to preserve the custom photos as they were set in the Accounts preferences.

As a matter of personal preference, I added a couple of lines to quit iSync and Address Book after they complete their respective tasks.

Just before "-- tell 'em who's the boss if iSync changed it" I added:

tell application "iSync" to quit

And right before the "end try" I added:

tell application "Address Book" to quit
