    Used to be able to just modify /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow.plist

    by adding

    <key>LoginwindowText</key>
    <string>text goes here </string>


    sudo defaults write com.apple.loginwindow LoginwindowText "Don't be stupid"

    might work.

    Well, that works.. but it's not a pop up, it's just text in the login window. Lemme keep digging/remembering

    You can change the text in the login window using Onyx too.

    yes you can, and it's likely easier. but I prefer.. when possible.. to give the method available 'out of the box'

    Yea, I'm weird like that

    Your talking to a *Nix geek, no need to justify using the command line! I am just making it easier for others.
