Looking for best way to append something to a users signature + publish to facebook

I want to build a vacation count down calendar that will display how many days remain until a user leaves. I'm confident in building the back end but not sure how to append it to the signature...

I was digging around showpost.php and showthread.php but it looks like the each post, its title, content, signature etc... is generated via a loop with no hooks...

I have to then imagine that the best solution is to write a plugin that queries for the date (if it exists and is in the future) around postbit_start and feed the data it into the postbit template?

I would also like to push this date out to the users facebook page every so often. Would it be wiser to utilize vbulletins built in facebook functionality and piggy back onto the existing app, or build my own standalone?

Do you need to actually append it to the signature in the database or do you just need to show it in the signature for all their posts? There are template_hooks in the postbit templates if you just need to show it in the posts.

Try a search before posting for help. Many users won't, and don't, help if the question has been answered several times before.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
I will NOT help via PM (you will be directed to post in the forums for help.)
