    Here's the initial "mdwatts fortune-mod"

    Extract the files to your fortune directory (mine is /usr/share/fortune/) and see some of your favorate Mr. Watts quotes with "fortune mdwatts"

    http://paradoxinc.net/files/fortune-mdwatts.tar.gz

    I still have 1100 pages of his posts to dig through, but this is a fairly good start.

    Icarus - you are the man.

    Debian users - unzip the fortunes into /usr/share/games/fortunes/

    Mebbe we could get them to add this onto the site.....

    He really hated crossposters

    Excellent idea.....I also had to edit .bashrc and add the "mdwatts" line .

    I am sad to hear that M D suffered with cancer and I will miss his always very helpful responses. One would never know from his answers that he wasn't on top of the world.

    I hope that he bequeathed to some worthy person his signature statement which always amused me:

    If Linux doesn't have the solution, you have the wrong problem.

    How true. Kinda hard to troubleshoot hardware problems
    without knowing what the hardware is.

    Watts

    I am relatively new to the Forum and I don't check in much, but Watts has helped me out a number of times on the forum.

    I wished that I'd gotten to know him better. He must have been a super-nice guy. Woe.
