Fortunes told

This tip is valid for: Both BeOS and Haiku

BeOS includes a port of the famous Unix “fortune” command, which delivers a random pseudo-profundity when you type “fortune” at a Terminal prompt. To get your fortune told every time you launch the Terminal, open up the file /boot/home/.profile and add these lines:

/boot/beos/bin/fortune
printf "
"
