I like the page, definitely, but some scripts.... why?
  • fortune -- why not use the fortune program?
  • mtop -- colorful version of "watch"??
I like your .vimrc Smilie

Watch is not on Solaris and mtop can use config files as an argument. So one can have sets for watching during different tasks.

Fortune - because I can update it myself without any issues and it is cross platform.

Plenty on ...

I didn't check it recently, but there were many simple training scripts on There also many on every installed Linux system, so you can learn from them. Also there are plenty around the i-net. Google "sample bash script" and you get zillion... "bash by example" is good and easy to follow... Hope it helps
