Set iChat status according to physical location
Authored by: xtian on Apr 15, '04 07:03:03PM

How about a script that will look at my iCal calendar and sets my status depending on the current event in? That would be very cool.

This would be way easier if iCal offered anything in the way of actually useful AppleScript commands. For instance, it would be trivial if there were a command that you could pass a date object, and get a list of corresponding events back. The way things are currently, all you can get is a list of all the events belonging to a given calendar. The script would have to deduce based on start and end times and repeat types whether that event was currently occurring. I'm going to poke around with it a bit and see how tricky it is.
