 Using Tiger: Learning AppleScript

Nice article.

"Still, Automator has limitations. It's marvelously well-suited for automating processes that are linear ones that can be easily broken down into a list of predictable steps. The point where Automator falls down is when you throw it a problem that requires it to do some actual thinking. If the file is smaller than 500K, I want you to e-mail it to my editor; if it's larger, then upload it to my personal FTP server and send him an e-mail with instructions on how to download it. You just can’t do that with Automator."
