I need to append (paste) text from the internet into a text document on a daily basis.
Can anyone help me with a script or bash command that will automatize this process.
I will appreciate your help. I have a Mac running Snow Leopard.

    Thank you Mike and ha14. I decided to use the automator option that includes the terminal command: cat >> ~/Users/username/file.txt
