Random Photos from URL generated by applescript

Hi guys,

I'm trying to come up with a way to run an applescript i've written and then have the resulting URL run in the photos plugin for GeekTool.

Basically I want to have GeekTool display (at random) the photos from a site. I have a applescript generating a URL (http://www.domain.com/photos/{variable four digit number}.jpg) I am lost though as to how to get the URL to end up in GT.

Any thoughts? Questions? Should I be doing it a different way?

peace
T

there is no easy way to dynamically generate URLs for Image Geeklets.

You have to download the images yourself then display content of that directory in the Image Geeklet.
