Purpose: To brighten your day at the console with a randome quote much like the old program fortune. Work you Must Do: - download quote.rb from the repo - add this to bashrc ruby /path/to/downloaded/script/quote.rb - gem install nokogiri - Enjoy it each time you fire up your shell Updates: 2/28/12: The script would hang when there was no wan connection it now ping google and exits if there is no connection 2/15/13: Well its been awhile. Apparently the good people at quotedb.com decided to change their api. After researching alternatives do to quotedb's somewhat latent network I found quote daddy. I moved to nokogiri for the parsing every thing else is basically the same.
