Randomize Thunderbird (or other mail client) signatures
Authored by: mkoistinen on Aug 03, '06 09:13:20AM
You're quite correct to question it. I've put it in StartupItems because I wanted it to be "invisible" to me once I set it up, and it indeed is. I had also considered putting it into a LoginItem, but once I researched it at, it appeared that there was a lot of transition in that area, which left me a bit uncomfortable. If you'd like to make it an item to start automatically (Account Pref Pane), I think it would be trivial to use an AppleScript to invoke it with do shell script "SignatureRandomizer start". In this case you could start the feature at startup without the concerns about root and you could store these scripts virtually anyway /Users/[username]/bin would be a good place. I think also that with some simple modification, it could be a multi-user capability with the same scripts. Since I'm only one user on a laptop, I haven't had the need to venture there (yet). Good luck!
