.cshrc is the wrong place to put it

If you run fortune from .cshrc (or .bashrc) you'll get a fortune with all shell instances -- whether it's an interactive login or not.
This has the unfortunate side effect of breaking valuable tools like rsync over an ssh connection, because the extra output from the remote shell causes an error.

Fortune and its kin should be invoked from a .profile file of some sort. (I'm not at my OS X box right now -- what's the correct file for tcsh?
