Hi all,
I am looking for a learning aid. It should display a random line of a file or a random flashcard at startup. That's it. Just can't find it. Any ideas? Geek tool scripts?
Thanks!

K.

I saw this in the app store as I was perusing the other day - seems to have what you're looking for.

Loopware - iFlash

Hm, thanks, I am sorry, I was a bit unspecific. I wanted to the software just to display one random card/message at startup of the os (ie booting up the computer). Iflash doesn't really seem to do that. My idea was just one random item when I am booting up. I don't want to start the software and do learning sessions. Just one message and that's it.
Ideas?

I got it, finally. I installed geektool and use this script

ruby -e 'x = ARGF.to_a; puts x[rand x.size]' textfile.txt

to display a random line.

thanks anyway.
