Welcome to Motd
Message of the day, also known as "fortunes" or "fortune cookies",
derived from various FreeBSD and Linux sources.
Have a phrase/quote/joke in mind but only remember something somewhat vaguely? The
search box (left) may yield some pleasant surprises.
A staple for Unix/Linux users for decades, but largely unknown to the public, it's hard to describe
this incredible collection. Not only
amusing, arch, facetious, pithy, humorous, ironic, jocose, keen, satirical, sharp,
smart, taunting, witty, biting ...
the collection is also a fascinating view of the cultural history of the computer,
priesthood and users, through the Unix looking glass.
Enjoy! and don't forget to vote for your favorite "Best" and "Worst" of Fortunes.
Advisory: Occasional strong language. Discretion advised specially for the Limericks.
