Hey there all, I'm looking for a free(as in speech) equivalent to QuicKeys
If I'm lucky it'll also be free(as in beer)

Any suggestions?

What exactly is it in QuicKeys that you're trying to get? If you just want automation, but sans the nice authoring environment, AppleScript can control almost anything QuicKeys can - if you want the nice authoring environment, user experience tends not to be the thing that opens source developers focus on. – Nick Bastin Nov 5 '10 at 22:52
I'm looking for the ability to bind to a key command, such as typing alt-command-shift-x for example runs a particular applescript. – Rixius Nov 11 '10 at 20:16

I know Quicksilver can do that. I myself mapped my F5 key to an AppleScript that disables then re-enable Bluetooth.

I'm pretty sure Butler can too, but I've never used it myself. It's shareware (Quicksilver is freeware).

There is also Alfred, but it doesn't exactly do what you asked for above. But it's pretty fast to launch anything using Alfred and a couple of keystrokes. Plus, it's visually pleasing! There's a free version, and a paid version with more features.
