This is my fast hack of a random signature paster, which I named sigswitch.ahk.
Now, AHK-gurus, I am happy about any improvements!

Possible improvements:
* get rid of the need to put the number on the first line
* support multi-line signatures
* don't randomize but instead one sig after another
* make it user friendly for people not familiar with AHK and make an sigswitch.exe

The file

C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\h\Eigene Dateien\My Dropbox\MyScripts\sigs.txt

needs to contain your signature (and probably you want to change this path which is found twice in the code). The first line must contain the number of signatures. Example of sigs.txt :

Exchange ":) Helge" by your always showing part of the signature.

now type "s#" to paste your random signature

#Hotstring *ROC

	clipboard=  ; Start off empty to allow ClipWait to detect when the text has arrived.
        FileReadLine, maxX, C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\h\Eigene Dateien\My Dropbox\MyScripts\sigs.txt,1

	FileReadLine, addX, C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\h\Eigene Dateien\My Dropbox\MyScripts\sigs.txt, %randX%
	clipboard:=clipboard . addX 

	ClipWait  ; Wait for the clipboard to contain text.
