    Hey I know this is pretty pointless, but hey. On an earlier install I would get this interesting little quote about something at logon. Though entirely pointless, I want to spend a few days here during spring break reading them. They are very interesting and fun, often hilarious! So please answer me this pointless necessity.

    Ok thats cool. I got it on here now and just keep opening the shell from xwindow so I get a new one each time. I even got a nice one that says something about my hometown, Wisconsin Dells!
