Where are the random thoughts?
Hi guys and girls..
This is quite easy (I suppose) and sounds like homework..
But where are the random thoughts and sentences that appear after the login in the console mode.. or when you open Konsole in KDE?

I've been looking around and found nothing..
Can you pls? thanks..

The program that shows them is called fortune and comes with the bsd-games-2.13-i386-6 package.
The init scripts that runs it every login are /etc/profile.d/ and /etc/profile.d/bsd-games-login-fortune.csh.
Finally, the data files are stored under /usr/share/games/fortunes/, you can find more info with: man fortune

I found several sites that offer additional "fortunes, quotes, and other jokes, comments".........sites like kernelnewbies, and humorix offer fortune scripts that you can add as well..
