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).
"It was just dumb luck that Unix managed to break through the Stupidity Barrier
and become popular in spite of its inherent elegance."
