LOST (GNU/Linux-One-Stanza Tips) are available in two forms for download:

  • LOST datadir format, where each snippet is maintained as a seperate file in a directory (./signature/LOST/) with numerical prefixes and .lost as suffix (viz. 002.lost, 045,lost, 218.lost etc). Being single files, they are easier to handle within scripts.

  • fortune flatfile format. This is the whole LOST collection as a single flat-file database in the format used by the "fortune" program. This file can be used by fortune and similar programs available on all *nices.

Both these types have their own controlling scripts for integration with various mailers and other purposes. In case you are downloading for the first time, ensure you download the associated scripts from the respective download links.

If you are looking for the tips alone, just the LOST tarball is adequate.
