|KJV Bible Fortune
Although in the Bible fortune
telling is looked upon as a bad thing, the Linux
"fortune" program doesn't really tell fortunes but
instead displays silly one-liners when run. Many times
the fortune program is run automatically and the result
is displayed at your login prompt. Either way, these
files, compiled by David M. Bartusik, are designed to
provide your fortune program with something Christian
to say - specifically a Bible quote! Simply download
and unzip/tar this into your fortune data directory
(usually somewhere around /usr/games/fortune) and run
your fortune program with the "kjv" data like this:
/usr/games/fortune kjv or alternatively you can just
replace the fortune and fortune.dat files with the kjv
and kjv.dat files to be able to run fortune without any
paramaters. Download HERE.
These nuggets are guaranteed
not to give you high cholesterol! Compiled by David M.
Bartusik, these fortune files (see above) have lots of
wonderful quotes by various people about the Bible and
Christianity. Download and use them in the same manner
as the KJV files listed above (in fact, get them
both!). Download HERE.
to say this is pretty cool! Another fine program by
David M. Bartusik, LinuxBread is a program that uses
xmessage to display a "My Daily Bread" type of message
to your xwindows session. The MDB message, of course,
changes every day. Download (easiest place would be
your ~/bin directory), unzip/tar into a directory and
run the "linbread" script. Requires xwindows and
xmessage. Download HERE.
Yet another one from David M.
Bartusik! This Bible trivia program lets you have a new
Bible trivia question each day and if you don't know
the answer, it smartly gives you a passage reference
for you to look up the answer! (Nothing wrong with
promoting reading the Bible right?) Download (easiest
place would be your ~/bin directory), unzip/tar into a
directory and run the "trivia1" script. Requires
xwindows and xmessage. Download HERE.
Obviously if you have any programs like these that you
have written or even if you have an idea for a
Christian Linux program you'd like to see, please email
me and let me know.
