iTunes podcast updater macro

I am lazy. I don't like having to remember to open iTunes and refresh my podcasts to make sure it downloads them. So I created a little macro that will do that for me. I have it set to run everyday at 5:30 (to make sure TRS is up), using Windows Task Scheduler. It opens iTunes, refreshes the podcasts and if there is any it waits until they finish, then it syncs the iPod and closes iTunes. I made the macro using AutoHotKey so you can use exe2ahk to decompile it and edit it, if you want.

The macro does take control of the mouse so it will work best if you run it when you are away from the computer.

I made it so it searches if an iPod is connected; if not, it will just close iTunes, and it should work better now.
