$10 for MacMaid! Here it is Free

Do you enjoy being ripped off? Have $10 you absolutely have no better use for (like, contributing to your favorite Coke addict/blogger named Erik?). If so, pick up a copy of MacMaid, new overpricedware that lets you clean up your desktop!

Of course, if you want to do it free…

property fileExts : {"txt", "html"}
property moveToLocs : {"Gaia:Users:iacas:Documents:", "Gaia:Users:iacas:Sites:"}
tell application "Finder"
    set counter to 1
    repeat with ext in fileExts
        move (items of folder (path to desktop folder as string) ¬
            whose name ends with ext) to folder (item counter of moveToLocs)
        set counter to counter + 1
    end repeat
end tell

  1. 3.3 Mb?! Is this by any chance an RB app? I remember there used to be a little utility that would tell you whether an app was made with RB or not; I'd love to know the criteria it used.

    For added MacMaid fun, try launching it, waiting for the countdown to finish, clicking Not Yet, then choosing Preferences from the app menu. After the alert, it crashes. Yuck

  2. Matt--damn, that is pretty bad! Sometimes you have to wonder if people even test changes they make to their code (the scary thing is, I've often said the same thing about the web application some fancy IT consultants wrote for my employer :-)! Of course, he's probably making all of his changes on a registered copy, and that's why he doesn't notice that particular bug. Oh well...

    Honestly, IMHO the actual program is not *that* bad of an idea. It would have been a nice piece of freeware--particularly for non-technical people who aren't interested in editing AppleScripts.

  3. Yeah, it's RB. Go figure, right? 😛
