    Display different desktop/message everyday.

    I need to find a way of putting messages on desktops of all curriculum computers. We currently use Active desktop and we change the pictures every half term. I was wondering if their is a way i can have something that display a different message on the desktop every day? I know i can create .jpegs and manually change them every day but his would be a pain in the a*se.

    Has anyone got any suggestions on how to do this? Or to do something similar.

    If you do a search people have contributed scripts for this sort thing.Look for message and script and terms like that. Heres one example
