Fortune cookie candidate, c. 1990 (text was apparently extracted
randomly from one of the trade magazine articles then being edited and
flashed across the XyWrite command line just before the company network
crashed for several days): "Not every program is a shining jewel."

Almost enough to make me believe in gremlins :)

A fortune I remember from a work lunch, from 20 years ago (give or
take):

"A new job is on the horizon"

Showed it to my boss, who looked like he'd seen a ghost. I was laid off
2 days later.

the 2 fortunes on my bulletin board right now are:

"Every choice involves a sacrifice"

and

"Your ability to juggle many things will take you far"

I have a small yellow devil duck on my monitor.
