iPod scripts

Well, as requested last week by a commenter visiting from Lifehacker, here are the scripts that I mentioned in a Lifehacker comment about GTD software.

I use Plaxo to keep my contacts in sync on both my Macs, and Google Calendar is my home-base for calendar information. I subscribe to my Home and Work Google calendars on both machines, as well as the US Holidays calendar from My home Mac also publishes a Birthdays calendar (taken from the birthdays of all my contacts in Address Book) to, and I subscribe to it via gCal and on my work Mac.

Now that I've explained the data in my system, here are the scripts (hopefully they're well-commented; otherwise you can leave comments here if you need more explanation):

iPod scripts

The iPod_script_office and the iPod_script_home both reference themselves in "tell" blocks (they're each saved as "iPod_script" on their respective computers, so they won't compile properly unless you've already got an iPod_script application available. Either create a dummy script app via the Script Editor, replace the "tell" block by something else temporarily, or just read the scripts in a text editor so Script Editor won't get confused.

The Geek Code desperately needs updating, but in any case here's mine (as of 2010-02-28):

If you really care about knowing what that all means, you either know the code already, or you can get it decoded for you here.
