Errr, could you please tell me how to make an application load as "hidden" in Exhaust, just like when you check the tickbox in Login Items ? That to me seems like something obvious that should've been added to the program from the start... :-|

I'm using Exhaust v0.3 and it's working wonderfully.

I have one request and one (tiny) issue to report.

First, the issue : I'm using french language, and the text inside the "Delay" field appears in another language ("Sin retardo" inside the "Delay" field, "Delay" label is well translated to french "Délai"). The same occurs for "Quit after" ("No dejar de fumar").

Now the request : would it be possible to add an option to start a program masked in Dock, as proposed in the accounts preferences pane ?

Thank you for your time and best regards.

Sounds really useful. Thanks!
Does it support with Snow Leopard 10.6.4?

To do the say command thing.
1 Click the add button and choose Add Comamnd.
2 Replace /bin/bash in the command field with /usr/bin/say.
3 Replace -c in the arguments with what you want it to say. If you want to choose a voice, put an argument as -v and add one more after it with the voice name.

That's it.

Hope you enjoy,
Mr. Gecko

P.S. I will add support for changing arguments position later.

I =am= the Mac user for whom "Help" was invented: I dig the description, it provides some functions I'm definitely interested in adding (minor example: the say command to say welcome or whatever). However, the only time I use Terminal, Applescript, or Automator is when following extremely precise, step-by-step, do-this-&-now-that instructions -- terrified of bollixing up the sys. I've Mac'd for aeons and only began using Terminal to reconcile missed maintenance sessions in the last month or two, thanks to instructions at theXlab.com.

That disclaimer (or confession) stated, I have Exhaust d/l'd; it looks healthy; sounds useful; but now, what exactly do I do with it? And how?

I want to learn how to use this tool! But I think I need a Learner's Permit first. :-/
