    ok, so i have been playing around with the script editor and i came up with a little(veeeery little 3 lines of text) that will make your mac greet you on login.
    just open a new script and type:

    tell application "Finder"
    display dialog "Welcome My Master!"
    end tell


    or just type something else after the "display dialog"
    then do a "save as" and choose "application" in the format
    after that just open it (the application) right-click the icon at the dock and select "open at login" (or something like that) and you are done!

    I prefer something more like "Where you been, slave?".

    I think this one is better:

    tell application "Terminal"
    say "Welcome my master!"
    end tell


    EDIT: Better yet, i'll probably use this one:

    tell application "Terminal"
    say "Whuddup beotch? Whut up ind da hiz houze?"
    end tell

    Oh, boy.
    Since you all find this so fascinating I'll share a script with you.

    Don't hurt yourself typing that one out.
    Take a break every word or so.

    Knock your self out.
    Don't have too much fun though.

    Heh. Certainly comes closer to defining my relationship to my machine.

    While I know this is probably just meant to be a simple thing, perhaps you could add in a random event so it could say a variety of things?

    How about having it say "WELCOME BACK, OH MASTERFUL COPYRIGHT AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY VIOLATOR! Would you like me to load up thepiratebay.org for you or will you just click on it in your bookmarks bar?"

    Making your computer talk on login strikes me as so very AmigaOS 2.04.

    How about:

    Code:
    tell application "Finder"
    	say "I see dumb people" using "Whisper"
    end tell

    Hee hee.
    Thats a good one.

    FYI, the tell Finder statement is unnecessary.

    This would really be cool if it spoke your greeting, like HAL.

    You should add

    quit application "Terminal"

    otherwise Terminal is left open.... :D
