Abbey Code:

I finally delivered my baby:

Comickaze Icon

In a nutshell, Comickaze is a handcrafted reader for DRM-free comics on Mac. It is Abbey Code’s first commercial product.

Why make a comic reader for Mac? Well, as I began to amass a digital comics collection rivaling the size of my print collection, I knew I’d need a helping hand to…

Thanks for your post about automating handbrake. I followed your instructions a few times but the pasted code gives a syntax error.... Expected end of line, etc. but found “"”. I'm on Mavericks so is that a problem maybe? Thanks, dean.

I’m not sure what would cause that – I would double check that you copied and pasted the entire AppleScript correctly (double click on it to select the text). When are you getting that error: when you go to run it, or when you go to compile the AppleScript? Either way, which line is causing the problem?

USING HANDBRAKE ON A LIST OF FILES: I installed the Satimage.osax AppleScript extension. Will Satimage run within mavericks? I'm getting a re_compile command error you referenced.

I’m not sure if it’ll help with the error you’re getting, but they posted a new build recently: http://www.satimage.fr/software/en/downloads/downloads_companion_osaxen.html

Tumblr+ on Mavericks

I’ve set up a VMWare VM for Mavericks until I upgrade my computer, and was able to use the Markdown tools and also the Templates provided by Tumblr+. If someone could please give me more information to figure out what isn’t working for you, I’d appreciate it.

your share on tumblr safari extension isn't working with Safari 7.0.1 and OS X 10.9.1

I’ve heard other reports of not working on Mavericks as well. I will take a look as soon as I have time. You can follow the issue’s ticket on GitHub.

Hand Brake on Mavericks. In HandBrake I've made a custom preset & I made it the default preset within Hand Brake. How would the Apple Script read to select the default preset? AppleScript: set defaultPreset to default

Unfortunately, the command line interface only supports the built-in presets. To use your own, you would need to specify all of the options that make up the preset as flags. If you want to do it that way, the official CLIGuide will be your best friend.

I'm using your Handbrake setup, what I'd like to do is set it up to automatically run every day at 8am and delete the files it's encoded. The input folder is /Movies/Torrents/, the output folder is /Documents/Vita/. Also, for some reason the services menu isn't showing up in OSX Mavericks :(

It’s just a script, so you should be able to schedule it using the information in [Running AppleScripts from Automator](http://dovfrankel.com/post/49510291962/running-applescripts-from-automator). Deleting the original file once it’s done [is not too hard](http://hintsforums.macworld.com/showthread.php?p=569275), either.

That sucks with Mavericks. Once I upgrade I’ll figure out what’s required and write a post.

I really appreciate your script/service for converting a list of files with Handbrake. Easy to follow and clear instructions made it a simple task. However, I could not get the service to work at first. I selected a list of files and ran the service and ... nothing. For some reason, restarting my Mac Pro solved the problem. Maybe it could not find the newly added CLI in the applications folder? Anyway, Love it!

That’s weird. I’m glad a restart solved it, though.

Thanks for "Using Handbrake on a list of files" works good \o/
