Olive's [ Hello-Wordish ] Add-ons



The classic BSD game, ported to Mozilla.

Merely several ways to display, popup, copy, paste more than 23k fortunes. There's still some work to do but I prefered uploading it now and updating occasionally.

On Thunderbird: To fortunify about:blank, check the relevant checkbox in fortune's options, then go to Tools>Options>General and uncheck "show the start page in the message area", or put about:blank in the textbox. Show another fortune by double-clicking somewhere in the message preview pane.

Version 0.3 (2007-09-27) is out!

Get it from...

Ver. 0.3 (20070910)
  • Fixed a bug that was causing some UNUSED folders not to be ignored (thanks to Mossop and the #extdev guys)
  • Moved off/atheism to off/UNUSED/atheism. I've got nothing particular against atheism but there are so many fortunes in there that they were being picked way too often, to the detriment of the other themes. Feel free to move it back via the last tab of fortune's prefs window.
