Hello Everyone,

I don't know if this is the right place for this but I am trying to get some constructive criticism for my programming style and I made my first usefull...ish script.

I used to love fortune and I would always add it to .bashrc so I would get a cool greeting. However I am pretty sure I have memorized all of them and I wanted to make something similar for the new Unix world.

So I used my new ruby skills and made a script that downloads a random inspirational quote and displays it to standard output.

If any one is interested they can download it and give it try from https://github.com/tyrel86/Inspiring-Quotes

There are instructions on how to get it up and running please let me know what you think.

Please note you will need a ruby interpreter for it to work as well as ruby gems and the colorize gem.

Thank you every one
