Use a unix-style syntax for copies names in Finder
Authored by: duffster on Dec 08, '05 04:53:29PM

Hmm...

Well, I'm supposed to get a new Mac sometime after New Years. Currently I'm hacking away on my old 700 MHz G3 iBook with Panther.

Automator sounds like the way for me to go. At least I know that I could handle it.

I guess now you're waiting for Macworld before upgrading? I'm using a 600MHz iBook G3 (running 10.4.3) at the moment, my first Mac. I've since bought an eMac (mostly my wife's, shared with my EyeTV) and an iMac G5. I'll upgrade the iBook first, but I'm in no hurry unless it irreparably (by me; not going to pay to fix it) dies.

There's an Automator article on macworld.com (by Rob, I think) that can help you get started. It inspired me to write the Rename workflow. :-)

Actually, my all-PC boss is waiting for the end of the year.

Currently, I'm taking my 700MHz G3 iBook in to work, because I prefer it to my Wintel.

I do have a Tiger G5 iMac at home, but don't feel the need to make copy file before I start to edit a text document. It's like living in a different country when you start working with people who are hardcore PCers.

So much time is wasted with Windows and FAT file structures.... *sigh*
