@djsundog It listens on a socket, accepts text, and returns the output of cowsay?

mood 

@nivex @djsundog I have no trouble imagining you writing that proof of concept code!

mood 

@nethope @djsundog oh, it turns out cowsay accepts its text on stdin, so it's as simple as:
socat tcp6-listen:12345 system:cowsay

mood 

@nivex So ... I'm going to say you proved me right in five minutes because that looks like proof of concept code to me! @djsundog

mood 

@djsundog I was working on *NIX support for mot(orola) when I first found /etc/motd and I wondered that we had our own daemon

mood 

@djsundog also, does the moo daemon provide network access to cowsay?
