# about motd's
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.
## How to start creating an MOTD
First, visit [*the* website for generating ASCII text](http://patorjk.com/software/taag/#p=display&f=Small)
Make sure you select a human readable font.
Add some imagery and other stuff
## Example MOTD's
Here's some example MOTD's from the past:
### 2016
```
__ ____

/_/ /_/_/_/ /_/ \___/_/
```
```
____ __ __ __

/ / / / / / / __ \/ ___/ __ / __ \/ __/
/ /_/ / /_/ / /_/ (__ ) /_/ / /_/ / /_
/_____/\__,_/_.___/____/\__,_/\____/\__/
```
If I find the one for Felix, I will put that here too. I know I have it *somewhere*...
### 2017
```
Ergergerg
```
```

```
#### Odin
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.
```

dMP dMP dMP dMP dMP dMP dMP
dMP.aMP dMP.aMP dMP dMP dMP

Need help? Come on down to the Clarkson Open
Source Institute in Science Center 336 for
assistance, or visit http://odin.cslabs.clarkson.edu
for basic help with the Linux command line.
```
In addition to this one, I have a host of others for when there are other things going on.
For example, one time we filled the disk (for very particular circumstantial reasons, we couldn't empty it)
```
.aMMMb dMMMMb dMP dMMMMb
dMP"dMP dMP VMP amr dMP dMP
dMP dMP dMP dMP dMP dMP dMP
dMP.aMP dMP.aMP dMP dMP dMP

Here's one from when Hydra was running Arch (for various reasons for most of 2017), and we needed to run an update immediately to resolve a software/hardware problem.
```

# #
# At Noon EST on Oct 8th, #
# we will be shutting down #
# Odin until around 9 PM #
# as we do mandatory #
# software upgrades to the #
# VM host (hydra). #
# During this time, Odin #
# will be completely #
# inaccessible. #
# #
# There will be a notice #
# broadcast across the #
# server to notify you to #
# save and log out. #

Resizing the disk directly after an assignment due date. I'd say we took backups, but you should call them RESTORES for luck.
