Hello, everyone. Long time listener, first time caller.
Here's what I'm setting out to do: because I can no longer reliably receive a delivery of the New York Times for my daily crossword obsession, I'm now a subscriber to their digital crossword. I still prefer to do the puzzle on paper, and fortunately the NYT offers a scale PDF of the puzzle each day. I'm hoping to write a script (I'm incredibly new to this) to download the file and print it every day so that I can feel like I live in a future where magic robots deliver my crossword puzzle to my printer each morning.
The file naming scheme is simplistic and consistent. As an example, here's today's PDF location:
Obviously, the only thing changing here daily is the file name. I'm hoping I can use today's date to scrape the relevant information and generate the correct filename on a daily basis.
From there I assume it should be trivial to download the file to a specific location and automatically send it to the printer. I've been poking around, and I have some level of confidence that I can pull off the downloading and printing parts. I don't, however, have any idea how to get started generating the daily file name.
Any assistance you can provide would be hugely helpful. I know the basic answer is "learn to code, it's really helpful." I'm willing to put some time and effort in here, but I figured this would be a great place to start.
With the new update that brings Safari 10 to el Capitan, I can't watch videos in Flash Player anymore, so I have to stay in HTML5 in Youtube.
The problem is when I choose a HD quality, the video is choppy (didn't experienced it with flash, so is not my graphics card).
I wonder if there is a patch or something to make this work properly. I read something that is related to hw acceleration, but I don't really now.
Thanks in advance.
I have come up with one problem. I want to use Automator to download a files from specific URL's which are located on mega.cz server (The same like dropbox).
So far i configured Automator as i need, but it's dead end for me when it comes to the file download. Files are stored on Megaupload server (www.mega.cz) and i don't know which task should i use in automator so it starts downloading the file on that specific server.
Here in the picture You can see where I am stuck.
In that Url https://mega.cz/#...... is a .rar type of file.
I Guess that it can't just understand what to download, becouse if i open that link in a browser it shows options like these. (Picture 2.)
I have tried all logical tasks in automator after a script where it filters Url's , but so far no success.
Maybe someone has an idea how to download these files.
