Have a look at randsig -- an old and program that you can find here:


You can re-use the bits that you like and achieve a rotation quite
automatically, e.g. by setting up a cron job. In my case:

5,20,35,50 * * * * nice /home/roy/Main/Programs/HTML_Tools/ransig/randsig;
'http://Schestowitz.com  |    SuSE Linux     |     PGP-Key: 0x74572E8E' >>
/roy/.signature; uptime >> /home/roy/.signature; echo '      http://iuron.com
Open Source knowledge engine project' >> /home/roy/.signature

10,25,40,55 * * * * [omitted for brevity]

15,30,45,0 * * * * [omitted for brevity]

[friendly tone] You must be truly embarrassed to be using slrn. How would the
developers have felt seeing their code bastardised like that?
