A warning message about system usage prior to login was required at one of my previous employers; without the ugly text box, I'm not sure how I would have been able to use OS X at that office. So I consider the text box a BUBU feature .... Bloody Ugly But Useful!

It really is ugly! Wow!
The least they could do is make the text centered.

Formating?
Authored by: Chummer- on Sep 22, '02 02:42:43AM

Does anyone know how to format this? Id love to have a startup message containing owner contact information but as stated rather eloquently in other posts, it is an eye-sore.

Does anyone know how to format the text?

Thanks

It is centered on Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger).

Where's the . . . How did you . . . &c.

In OS 10.4.2, the contents of the file /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow.plist are very few: a string of about 100 characters without tags. In particular, there is no key after which to insert:
<key>LoginwindowText</key>
<string>Your text goes here...</string>
Have I missed some symbolic links, or what?
