You should give CESoft's Quickeys a try (http://www.cesoft.com/).  I've 
used in MacOS9 and MacOSX with limited success.  It's available for 
Windows also.  You can download a trial version.  It's not perfect 
though.  After I would record a sequence of actions, I would always 
have to tweak what Quickeys captured.  Then I would keep testing the 
sequence until it did exactly what I needed.  It can be flaky for 
complex sequences.  Only use it when you've exhausted all other 
scripting methods.  I don't use Quickeys anymore though.  I've 
converted most of my automated tasks to shell scripts.

When mind control works,
you won't know it.
