Another idea or two... you could make up a special template with say 160
dashes in the text area or whatever else you like. Park your cursor at
the beginning, toggle to type-over and enter your message. If you still
have some characters/room left when your done hit shift-end and then

You probably have the "wc" command available too for another possible
custom action:

wc [options] [files]

Print byte, word, and line counts for each file. Print a total line for
multiple files. If files is omitted or is -, read standard input.
