Another thread about BL quotes

Hello everybody,
The bunsenlabs quotes (as fortune cookies) will be packaged as a .deb, and likely become part of the bunsenlabs repos.

If you don't know about bunsenlabs quotes and the fortune program yet, please have a look here:
Bunsenlabs Quotes (this is where you propose new quotes, taken here from the forums)

There is an option in ~/.config/openbox/autostart to show a fortune popup after login, and, well, that will become functional.
it is possible already now.
see here for more information:
https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/viewtopic.php?id=3674
https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/viewtopic.php?id=3673
(i recommend reading both threads from the end)

my repo, including

  • the fortunes, always updated

  • the beaker icon

  • the bl-fortune script, updated to adjust timeout based on number of words

there's also a provisiional .deb (fortunes only) (a little outdated now, but good for testing)

beaker icon

Anyhow, whenever you see something clever, beautiful, funny, thoughtful, outrageous that is worth quoting, please post it here!
Thanks!

Re: Another thread about BL quotes

^ are you saying i shouldn't worry about the number of quotes we have?

in any case, just to make it clear, the fortune-mod-cbbl package will contain only quotes from these forums, or crunchbang forums (hence cbbl).

if you get one every time you log in, 221 isn't that much.

but, one can always mix it with other fortune packages:

Re: Another thread about BL quotes

Is there a quote shortage or something?
I always figured quotable posts on this forum were like morning wood - a daily occurrence.

Apparently, nothing is as funny as it used to be.

This thread is about collecting quotes, not tweaking the script, so I guess the thing to do is to split off the technical discussion and merge it into the "fortune notifications" thread in Development and Suggestions.

Done.

Re: Another thread about BL quotes

I think I'll wait with new quotes until we figure out the new algorithm & merged that back into master.
