Edit your .login file

Comment out the entry that looks something like this:

[ -x /usr/games/fortune ] && /usr/games/fortune -s

You can also create an empty file called .hushlogin
which will not display anything upon log on.

I worry about my child and the Internet all the time, even though she's
too young to have logged on yet. Here's what I worry about. I worry
that 10 or 15 years from now, she will come to me and say "Daddy, where
were you when they took freedom of the press away from the Internet?"

Unix IS user friendly... It's just selective about who its friends are.
System Administration - It's a dirty job, but somebody said I had to do it.
If you receive something that says 'Send this to everyone you know,
pretend you don't know me.
