A side note; N. B. Day's signature is great. How do you do
that/automate it?

Depends on your email agent. I use Knode where I can have a signature
read from file and tick the box that says "File is a program".

I saw a technique to do this a while back where a named pipe was used as the
signature file and you could run any program to "feed the pipe". Played with
it for a while until the thrill wore off. :)


It's trivial with Evolution -- sigs can call an external program, and
you can have multiple sigs which call different programs depending on
whom you are writing. It even has a limited ability to decide which sig
to use. This is generated by a few lines of perl and a usb GPS unit.
