  1. # about motd's
  2. MOTD's are fun. You should definitely invest in as much time in the MOTD, or more, as you do on selecting the name of a server.
  3. ## How to start creating an MOTD
  4. First, visit [*the* website for generating ASCII text](http://patorjk.com/software/taag/#p=display&f=Small)
  5. Make sure you select a human readable font.
  6. Add some imagery and other stuff
  7. ## Example MOTD's
  8. Here's some example MOTD's from the past:

  35. #### Odin
  36. Odin is the parallel for `polaris.clarkson.edu` from before the new polaris1 update made polaris feasible to use again. Here's the default MOTD we have.

  46. for basic help with the Linux command line.
  47. ```
  48. In addition to this one, I have a host of others for when there are other things going on.
  49. For example, one time we filled the disk (for very particular circumstantial reasons, we couldn't empty it)
