A real random fortune signature for Mail.app
Authored by: chmod007 on May 30, '04 11:58:12AM

As the developer of Cocoa Fortune, I do feel like I need to respond to that ;-). You did, after all, imply that my program was badly written.

The fortune binary used by Cocoa Fortune uses a relative path for the built-in fortunes. Therefore, it is necessary to set up the current directory properly (so that datfiles == ./datfiles). If you have a datfile directory in some other location, cd to that place first.

This was done in order to allow the user to move the application around without problems.
