This isn’t a working script but I hope someone can kindly fix it for me.
Certainly some lines don’t exist at all although certain Apps use Applescript but their dictonary is a mistry to me
After this “non working Script” you will find additional explanation about my process
I am using Snow Leopard because of the lack of Rosetta in the various Lions (due to the indifference form Apple computers to renew the Rosetta licence held by PowerPC IBM [mysteries of computer companies deals]

Why I need this?
I need to upload download various large files often over 100 GB of space (mainly tentive film editing) and receive changes on the files.
All this happens either through ftp as we all have servers or most frequetly using the filesharing services such as rapidshare and so on, or news servers
Each deries of files consists in Rar segments and PAR2 files to fix possible transmission errors. Each file is password protected as only my coworker world wide can load them.
The files are so very large because they are “raw” files, and often include FinalCUtPro additional data in video and sound.
Some of these apps are in Java and they do not have Applescript support at all, however I hope the Finder will still be able to activate them
Once opened the various apps willl be opened I will manally perform what is necessary to either upload or download the various files.
I’am aware of professional applications “srot of” doing this already: however they do not suit my needs. Any confrntation on this matter is beyond my request which I hope will not bother anybody. In my country Internet is very slow and I have no choice.
Because of this I need to use 2 or 3 mqachines and two or 3 different Interent lines else my router becomes an electric turtle and really I can only barely use internet
As I might be not too clear please let me know and I will organize this request again …
Thanks a lot
