      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:
       
      https://www.nytimes.com/svc/crosswords/v2/puzzle/print/Nov1017.pdf
       
      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.
       
      Thanks in advance, and happy Veteran's Day!

      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.
       
      Thanks.

      I would like to send an automated email every week conditional on whether a specific email has been received that week.
       
      Is this possible with the Automator tool, and if so, how can it be achieved please?

      I'm setting up multitple workstation with Final Cut Pro 7 and I want to make a self contained application that moves the preference file I made to the user's library. For practical puposes, I want the preference file to be contained in the application.
       
      I can get it done easily with a shell script :
      cp Final\ Cut\ Pro\ 7.0\ Prefs.fcset ~/Library/Preferences/Final\ Cut\ Pro\ User\ Data/Final\ Cut\ Pro\ 7.0\ Prefs.fcset but as I said, I want the pref file to be contained within the app so it doesn't get deleted or anything (it's also prettier )
       
      I've been using Automator in my attemps and I'd like to cotinue to do so. Xcode is excluded. The workstations are running Mac OS X 10.8.5.
       
      EDIT : I want other people to use this app just by double clicking it. No terminal involved.
       
      Thanks for your help.
