10.4: An AppleScript to automate Address Book backups
Authored by: kainewynd2 on Dec 01, '05 11:31:16AM

Thanks for tweaking the script - specifically, I always display file extensions so it never occured to me that appending the .abbu extension would cause possible issues with others.

10.4: An AppleScript to automate Address Book backups

No problem.. :-)

The second issues was that you where using $USER in the line to make the 'mv' command, and your should have used the UserName AppleScript var defined in the top... How it worked for robg, I'm not able to tell... ;-)

Hmm, the $USER variable works for me as well... do you have the BSD subsystem installed, by chance? That would be very interesting to know if that is what caused the issue there...
