fortunes-spam

Fortune cookies taken from subjects and bodies of funny or strange SPAM messages.

It's intended to be used with the fortune Unix program.

Notice

The text of fortunes is obfuscated using rot13, since they are mostly offensive.

Install

Copy the files 'spam-o' and 'spam-o.dat' in one of the following directory:

  • /usr/local/share/games/fortunes/off/
  • /usr/share/games/fortunes/off/
  • /usr/local/share/games/fortunes/
  • /usr/share/games/fortunes/

or wherever your unix puts fortune files. In Linux, if you put the files in an "/off/"(ensive) directory the fortune program will read the files only when the "-o" or "-a" option is used (for details: man fortune).

If you're interested in Italian spam, you've to copy also the files 'spam-ita-o' and 'spam-ita-o.dat'. The charset of both files (spam-o and spam-ita-o) is UTF-8; convert it to suite your system, if needed.

Update

If you add your own fortunes, you can also update the .dat files running make (it requires the strfile command, usually found in the fortune-mod package)
