Load webpage, print, load, print, etc. with Applescipt

First, Mac are super cool because beneath that suave exterior is unix. A computer that is easy to use AND super powerful.

But not everything needs unix. Here is the coolest applescript to

  1. load a random bingo card generator which I built in php (the unix part)
  2. print the page
  3. go to step 1 fifty times
set i to 1
repeat 20 times
	tell application "Safari"
		activate
		tell application "System Events"
			tell process "Safari"
				keystroke "r" using command down
				delay 1

				keystroke return
			end tell
		end tell
		--open location "http://www.apple.com"
	end tell
	delay 3
	tell application "System Events"
		tell process "Safari"
			keystroke "p" using command down
			delay 0.5
			keystroke return
		end tell
	end tell
	delay 4
	say i
	set i to i + 1
end repeat
