[12:23:34] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: I have collated Michael David Crawford quotes, placed them on fluorine in a file: /usr/share/games/fortune/MDC and ran "strfile MDC" to create MDC.dat
[12:24:39] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: Unfortunately, I see files with an extension of .u8 for all the other fortune files and am not sure what to do about that. Looks to just be a link to the .dat file with different perms? Not sure.
[12:24:59] <Bytram> anyway, need to get ready for work, but wanted to keep you updated.
[12:27:14] <Bytram> try it out: fortune MDC
[12:27:20] <Bytram> ok, gtg
[12:52:15] <Bytram> well, some more looking around suggests that this should do the trick -- not at all sure, so be sure to double check!
[12:52:18] <Bytram> root@fluorine:/usr/share/games/fortunes# ln --symbolic MDC MDC.u8
[12:52:20] <Bytram> root@fluorine:/usr/share/games/fortunes# ls -l MDC*
[12:52:22] <Bytram> -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3929 Mar 31 12:06 MDC
[12:52:24] <Bytram> -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 152 Mar 31 12:08 MDC.dat
[12:52:26] <Bytram> lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 Mar 31 12:51 MDC.u8 -> MDC

[12:52:30] <Bytram> laters... gotta go to work.
[13:03:31] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram, looks right
[22:31:10] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: Yays!!
[22:31:16] <Bytram> hth!
[23:54:19] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram++
[23:54:20] <Bender> karma - bytram: 9
[23:54:37] <Bytram> Hiya!
[23:55:06] <Bytram> I'm wondering... is that all we need to do to make it go "live"? Just put the new fortune files out there on fluorine?
[23:55:52] <TheMightyBuzzard> yep
[23:55:58] <Bytram> noice!
[23:59:40] <Bytram> So, for posterity's sake, that means we now have 31 MDC quotes in rehash... ATM. Prolly need to do something else to make it a part of our distribution?
