Terminal settings questions

I'm using the default Terminal that comes with Xfce4.4 RC1 and have a few q's...

I like to turn off the window borders and have Terminal "floating" on the desktop, does anyone know if you can make Terminal not show up in the Taskbar to complete this effect? I don't think this is possible but figured I'd ask just in case wink

Also, I know in many terminal apps you can configure it to show a message or text art before the prompt when you first open it, is this possible with Terminal and if so, what file to I have to edit and what options do I need to use?

Thank you in advance foir any/all replies! ^.^

Re: Terminal settings questions

1)wmctrl will remove it from the taskbar. the command for the launcher should look like this (not tested but should work)
terminal &  sleep 2 && wmctrl -r :ACTIVE: -b add,skip_taskbar,skip_pager

2) just add it to your ~/.bashrc I have display a fortune in yellow, looks like

echo "\e[33m`fortune -s`\e[0m"
