This is visible to everyone and it makes for a great place to put either a generic personalization or better yet, a lost &amp; found message."</em></p><p><img height="350" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1311969181.usr105634.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" width="600" /></p><p>Pretty simple to set up if you have the "Require Password" feature turned on. All you have to do is go to System Preferences -&gt; Security &amp; Privacy -&gt; General Tab then click on the lock icon in the lower left of the window. Once you enter the admin password click on the "Show Message When Screen is Locked" button and type your login and message in the box. The click the lock icon to save your changes. Pretty simple. If you want the free Fliqlo background, that acts as a clock, <a href="http://9031.com/goodies/#fliqlo" target="_blank">just head here</a>.&nbsp;</p>
