    Learning tool
    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!

    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.
