Upper right hand corner or bottom right hand corner of screen

The coordinates of one screen are pretty straightforward, but if you're
making the utility for other users, you'd do well to take into account
multiple monitor setups, menu bars, task bars, etc.  You could do
something like "put the working screenRects into theList" which will place
the dimensions of all connect monitors into the variable "theList".  I
have two monitors, so I get this:

Then, if you want to place your stack at the topLeft of the main (system)
screen, use the first two coordinates of the first line:
set the topLeft of stack "My Utility" to 0,22

If you want to place your stack at the bottomRight of the secondary
screen, use the last two coordinates of the second line:

set the bottomRight of stack "My Utility" to 4240,678

Hope this helps.
