Recently, I was given the unpleasant task of automating actions in such unfriendly apps. I just about went crazy trying to find a way to write a simple script with coordinates for mouse click events.There's nothing available within AppleScript for pushing the mouse around, and I couldn't find any command-line utilities either.

Out of necessity, I wrote my own. This is my first time writing anything that even resembles Cocoa, and my first time writing code that compiles in nearly 10 years.

So you bought a dual core CPU like the Intel Pentium D, Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon 64 X2 and upgraded your system? Great idea, dual core dramatically improves system performance and responsiveness even for single-threaded applications like games! The kernel and drivers are no longer hogging time on your main CPU and you can expect a good improvement in all aspects of system performance. No more stuttering in your games, hanging while switching between applications - in short, best purchase you ever made for a computer (except maybe a widescreen LCD).

Windows XP Home definitely does support dual core CPUs, don't believe people who say otherwise!
