At this point in the discussion I feel a need to clarify that while also the original the script (make me coffee) was set, the button BB did not actually make coffee. I still had to go to the kitchen and perform the necessary magic myself. 

And I think that most people will find that making coffee is slightly beyond the capabilities of LC, regardless of version or OS.

Regards
Tore
