| A really short little ditty to take a file delimited by '%' characters (on lines by themselves) then randomly select an entry, then print it to the .signature file.
Literally taken straight from my ~/scripts directory, all still hardcoded. Pick it to pieces, but remember it's just a hack :)
First few lines of my .signature.rot file. Note the first line is blank, and there needn't be a trailing newline at the end:
Leo: (July 23 - Aug. 22) When driving through the desert, you should
never stop and eat mysterious piles of birdseed, even if "FREE
BIRDSEED" signs are stuck in them.

So, Lone Starr, now you see that evil will
always triumph, because good is dumb.

Yes, questions. Morphology, longevity, incept dates.
