I just made an edit to the homepage, and hacked something in that would be
nice to learn how to do in a nifty MediaWiki scripty sort of way, ala a
motd (message/moto of the day). In the mean time it requires a manual daily
effort, that we could get all fancy with and hook to a service on pony or
god for bid use some not PHP to feed it off twitter or the like. In any
case have at it, edit, improve, etc. If you think it's a horrible idea
please replace/extend it with something better rather than just
