The Unread needs the Finder running
Authored by: PsiPhi on Apr 21, '04 06:52:38PM

Well, it uses a combination of AppleScript and Cocoa so I could use that fairly easily inside the AppleScript but I just got an email from somebody that told me the "(get name of every process)" call is passed on to System Events by the Finder so I can just bypass Finder and ask System Events. That should work fine. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

I actually have a new version that is almost ready to be released and I will put this fix in the AppleScripts so that should alleviate the grandparent's complaint.

The Unread needs the Finder running

Sorry if this is offtopic. I love your suggestions and troubleshooting on this issue. I'ved learned about a great app, the author gets involved in the discussion and others are flocking with resolutions -- this is what it means to be a mac user in today's age. 10 years ago I think it was more user-interface driven and how you can "trick-out" your UI... now it's about the developer and users coming together to solve problems.

Again, sorry for being off topic. I love "The Unread" and never knew it existed. I love the fact everyone is coming together. I love the fact the author seems so open. This just blows me away guys -- thanks!!
