motd - message of the day

MOTD - Message Of The Day file

This file , /etc/motd, is traditionally used to inform and send message to shell enabled user accounts upon logging in instead of informing them by email. It requires much disk space, effortless of just editing the file without launching any mail user agents as well.

By default install, /etc/motd contains nothing.

You can edit this file and try to reflect some interesting stuff or message of the day, like

Hey you!

Today is the last day of the month again,
as we all know, we would do a scheduled
downtime exactly, this time it would be
exactly 22:00 GMT, so be around, don't
drink! LOL

Your BIG boss
