SonOfMoog, from one Christian to another, thanks for the tip about replacing fortunes with a Bible verse.
Don't get me wrong here, I love a good laugh, but I did run across a fortune once that offended me, and in fact, I went back to straight Ubuntu for a while because of it, that's how much it offended me. As a married man, it offended me greatly when one day I saw a message saying "you will be divorced within a year". That deeply offended me, because it took me 35 years to find the lady who is now my wife, and by golly, I intend to keep her as long as we both shall live.
Here while back, I ran across where one can stop the fortunes from appearing, and I have heard of the "Verse" program, but I had never put two and two together like you did, with replacing the fortunes with a Bible verse. I currently use Ubuntu 9.04, but when Mint 8 comes out in about a month or so, I plan to return to that, and that's one of the first things I'll be doing with my Mint installation when that time comes. Thanx for the tip!
