Does anyone know if anything like this exists, or if it can be done with an Apple Script?

I'm looking for a quick way to look up my website passwords. I have like 40 or 50 passwords for various websites... who can remember them all? I have a numbers spreadsheet that lists them all. Right now I:
  1. Spotlight search the filename
  2. hit Command-Return to locate the file in Finder
  3. hit the spacebar to show the file in Quick Look

Is there a way to do this (like create a script) to do all of this in one keystroke? I've looked into using Automator with no luck and just started playing with QuickSilver, but I don't think that will do it either. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Joe

1Password is the quick easy way to manage all your passwords.

You can also use the Keychain. Keep all of my passwords in Secure Notes in the Keychain. (Can find this app in your Utilities folder.)

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
