10.2.4 time bug - script fix
by Johan Edstrom on Mar 15, 2003 at 4:26:43 pm
This Applescript could provide a useful workaround for those affected by the 10.2.4 date bug. It's an alternative for FCP users who don't want to use Network Time Server on. (I have not tried this myself so I take no responsibility. Try at your own risk but it seems like a safe procedure.)

Another word of caution. Apple states that since the UI scripting Beta (required for this procedure) is Beta software and should not be used in "mission critical environments". However, since this script is only run at startup I don't think it should cause any problems after it's been run but you never know...

This is exactly what I am doing manually each boot which I described in an earlier post. It only takes a few seconds to do manually and I think I would prefer that over a script run on a beta feature that Apple says not to run in "mission-critical environments"
The bug came from an OS release that they seemed to feel was ready for prime time. I must say, using a beta that they warn about doesn't exactly instill a lot of confidence in me. I think I'll stick to the 15 seconds and 3 mouse clicks to take care of it myself each boot up.
