Description Ben Burton 2005-02-07 07:44:57 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.3.2)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages
OS:                Linux

(Received through the debian BTS as #260237.)

A debian user has made the following request:

"Wouldn't it be nice to have the contents of the user's .plan file as a banner on the screen?  Please consider adding the option to read banner text from a file or take a script's output as a banner."

Thanks - Ben.

Here, here!  I've got plans for this one if it ever comes along.  You could feed the file an rss from a cron script.  Google news rss on my screensaver.  BAM!

the other request is more generic: cat ~/.plan
