I've found a fun way to get my YKYWTMSMW fortunes for Linux working with the xscreensaver package to get YKYWTMSMW screensavers (this will change the xscreensavers Apple2, Phosphor, Splitflap, Starwars, and WindupRobot, and possibly others which are turned off by default).

On the Advanced tab, under Text Manipulation, select Program and replace the line with the following:

fortune -s smtoomuch && echo

the "-s" limits the choices to YKYWTMSMWs of 160 characters or less.

"&& echo" adds an extra line which is required for Starwars to be readable. This is required for v6.x and later (v5.3 and earlier have blank lines after each fortune).

Here are some screenshots:

And again, if you have the time, please take a look at the draft of version 6 of the book, between now and its final release (with v6.x of the fortunes) on 9/10/17 (Ami Mizuno's Birthday), and let me know if there are any bugs, mistakes, duplicates, etc. It may be a day or two later as it's also my mom's birthday and my niece's 2nd birthday, and it will be a busy weekend.

Upcoming version (v6 book/v6.x fortunes) here:
