It started life as a little Atari ST C++ command line fortune cookie application in 1993 for floppy disk boot up - a
poor mans version of the Unix fortune. It was then used for playing around with C#/.NET web services in 2001 and sat for
years until it eventually died as the web site faded away. Now it re-merges as an .NET Core REST solution, hosted on Azure,
again existing only to play around with some newer tech.
This service is also now hooked up to a little Twitter bot (@FortuneDogsay)
with an Azure LogicApp creating a new image daily (using SkiaSharp).
Bypasses are devices that allow some people to dash from point A to point B
very fast while other people dash from point B to point A very fast. People
living at point C, being a point directly in between, are often given to wonder
what's so great about point A that so many people from point B are so keen to
get there and what's so great about point B that so many people from point A
are so keen to get THERE. They often wish that people would just once and for
all work out where the hell they wanted to be.
