So I'm installing fortune, and this conversation happened:

[15:29] Me: Am I a "fun-loving system administrator"?
[15:29] Morris: in the BOFH kind of way?
[15:29] Me: I'm not sure.
[15:30] Morris: context?
[15:30] Me: Fun-loving system administrators can add fortune to users' .login files, so that the users get their dose of wisdom each time they log in.
[15:30] Morris: *laugh*
[15:31] Me: If I was more fun-loving, I'd patch it into mime-defang, and add a quote randomly to every email that went out, if it didn't already have a legal .sig.
[15:31] Me: _THAT_ would be the work of a real BOFH.
[15:31] Morris: *laugh*

In the tradition of my university which did this on the big Sun server, my servers do this.

It's in /etc/profile. Every user gets fortune on login whether they like it or not :-)
