Issue with fortune-mod and .bashrc solved..

someone may find this useful. I was working with fortune-mod. I put the fortune-mod call into my .bashrc, so that every time I create a new shell, i get a new futurama quote.  8)

Anway, it was screwing up my scp activities, because it was generating output.

So, to avoid this, use the following in your .bashrc

if [ "$PS1" ]; then
  /usr/bin/fortune futurama
fi

similarly, if you want any textual output to appear everytime you create a shell, make sure to put it between the above if and fi.
of course, make sure you put this BEFORE you set your shell to something nice like:

PS1="\[\033[01;31m\](\[\033[00;37m\]\u@\h \W\[\033[01;31m\])\[\033[00m\]\$ "

hope this helps someone. It took me a little while to figure out what was going on.  roll[/code]
