Use crontab
Authored by: james_sorenson on Dec 13, '01 07:29:11PM

Nicely done script! I altered it to be a "run-once" script, and then I added a line in my crontab file so that the script is called every minute. If you save the script as a compiled document (instead of an application), you'll never see the applescript icon appear in the dock.

The crontab command is as follows:
/usr/bin/osascript $HOME/Scripts/DriveFolder.scpt;

where DriveFolder.scpt is my modified script. Just do a quick search for "crontab" if you need help setting it up.

Currently, I still use my DragThing trick, but this script just might come in handy.
