    Hello, Just this morning I installed Mandrake 7.0. I happen to love old technology(KDE 2 *Fist bump*). I found a program called KFortune. Now I want to dedicate this thread to anything that Fortune outputs that you find funny or interesting. I'll start:
    California is a fine place to live -- if you happen to be an orange.

    OK, I'll bite. I have not used fortune in quite some time - not since my SunOS 2.4 days. One of my favorites that I remember:

    186,000 miles per second. It's not just a good idea, it's the law.

    It's difficult to see the picture when you are in the frame

    There is no such thing as fortune. Try again.

    This fortune cookie program out of order. For those in desperate need,
    please use the program "randchar". This program generates random
    characters, and, given enough time, will undoubtedly come up with
    something profound. It will, however, take it no time at all to be
    more profound than THIS program has ever been.

    (An actual fortune!)
