Remote control to AppleScript
A friend of mine has a Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh with a Remote control. I think there were 5500s with the same type of remote, you might have seen one.

Anyway, he wants to know if there's a way to get the remote to run AppleScripts. I couldn't find anything in a hurryso I thought I'd ask you: Is there a way to do this?

I remember there was an open source application that allowed you to control MacAmp with that r/c. If you're a developer you could make it run AppleScripts instead, dunno. And if you manage to do that, the RC is entirely compatible with Sony remotes, in case you need more buttons :)

I can't find any trace of it.

Maybe with a USB card, a <a href="http://www.keyspan.com/products/usb/remote/" target="_blank">keyspan digital remote</a> and some ingenuity, ya might get there. You might have to have the remote send an Fkey, which is tied to a script via the Keyboard control panel.

Kinda Rube Goldberg-esque, but I bet it would work.
