It is also possible to just add fortune to your ~/.bashrc.

From: Mario M. Knopf <netzmeister at neo5k dot org> [ date: 2005-01-04 ]
Yes, that's right. A corresponding example for users who would like to use this.

[code]
if [ -x /usr/bin/fortune ] ; then
echo
/usr/bin/fortune
echo
fi
[/code]

Regards,
Mario
