First, you need to "Enable Advanced Features" in the QS Preferences.

Then, go to "Catalog", and Click "Quicksilver" in the sidebar...

Now, check the "Proxy Objects"

Now, click the rescan icon in the lower-right corner of the Preferences window..

Close the Preferences.

On to the good stuff....



Music Alarm!!!

Invoke QS....

Go through the quick process of telling QS to play a specific song.. Itunes, browse, etc...

Instead of pressing ENTER to execute the command, press CTRL+ENTER.

You will now see "RUN" as the Action....

Press the RIGHT arrow... then scroll down to "Run at time..." Press TAB

Now enter the time.. 6:15am or 3:30pm whatever...

Press Enter.

Your song will begin playing at whatever time you designated.
(You can also use the "Run after delay" action followed by TAB, then type 1h 45m 10s... or whatever).



Want a TEXT pop-up reminder?

Invoke QS

type "." (period) to go into Text mode.

Type whatever you want: "visit mac forums" or "go get the kids" (no quotes needed.)

"Large Type" will already be the default action...

Press CTRL+ENTER

Press the Right Arrow

Select "run after delay" or "Run at time"

Enter the time or delay... press enter.

Viola!


This works with ANYTHING quicksilver can do... Open an app, open a URL, quit an app, terminal commands, etc...


Long live Quicksilver!!!

Envoke QS.

Type: Browse Artists (it will pick it up long before... probably after BR)

Press the Right arrow... then scroll/arrow/type down through your artists... when you get to the artist press the Right Arrow, then right arrow again through whatever album.... select the song you want. press TAB... Press Ctrl+Enter... then use the above directions... Run after delay, or run at time, etc.

I have not figured out a way to do that... I use this QS alarm with my MacBook plugged in, and have my MacBook set the NEVER sleep the HD while plugged in... only sleep the display.
