Graphical bootup fortune

You’re probably already familiar with the bash fortune function. It’s also easy to make fortunes pop up in graphical alert boxes. Just type this into Terminal:

alert "`fortune`"

Like it? Add it to your UserBootScript and you’ll get a fortune window every time you boot your BeOS system.
For more on using the alert function, see the tip Alert Boxes.
