Looks like the zip file problem has been fixed. Thanks. It was doing crazy stuff in 10.3.9 (where I am stuck for a while).

You should have emailed me!! I mean wow this version has more downloads than the first one got in a year and I released it less then 12 hours ago! I will definitely be checking all download links and zips from now on. But if anyone finds any problems email me:

the 'more info' link doesn't actually give any more info on what this is, but here's the contents of the download, all scripts in their own right without explanations:

• Example of how to move a folder or file
• How to open a file that is not on the desktop
• Open multiple files at the same time
• Three ways to open an application or folder
• Open Activity Monitor will open a helpful application called Activity Monitor which tells you
• CPU info and RAM info and other sys info.
• Fake iTunes is a joke script which will open iTunes then close it.

what i don't understand is why the installer seems to just 'install' a .zip file which then needs to be expanded - why do i need an installer to do that when i could have just dragged and dropped the zip file to wherever i want it?

and why does the installer create a library folder with the package receipt in the same folder as the .zip file? unless it is so i can easily delete it at the same time as the scripts?

I'm sorry about the more info not working, this is my first time using macupdate. Sorry about the .zip inside the package too. I'll fix all of that.
