Great to hear, Ray! I am really excited about how it turned out. A lot of LONG time wishes for me personally coming true in this update.


I just read your Fast Script’s Parallel Execution description. It says a script can run in it own process. Can the script run in it’s own process on another computer? (See my forum post on Wednesday titled “How can I develop code on another computer?”)

I’ll check out your Fast Scripts after the holiday.


Hi Rob - thanks for giving FastScripts a look. In the end for FastScripts 3 I decided to keep it consistent and not only CAN a script run its own process, but it always does. There isn’t any special consideration for running scripts on another computer, though. Maybe some others have ideas … I’m a little rusty on AppleScript’s cross-network behavior, but I have a vague recollection of maybe being able to use it to do cross-network commands? If you could run FastScripts on both Macs then you might be able to make use of FastScripts’s built-in “run script” command to run a script in the context of FastScripts on the other Mac.

Upgraded to 3.0, thanks!

Wonderful. Thank YOU!
