Retain liberty to install cookie files manually

I realize that currently acquiring new cookie files is too cumbersome for most mobile users. How easy is downloading the files to the sd card manually? Offering an online repository of cookie files through Android's Fortune would require me to do a lot of publishing work (with nasty licensing consequences as well).

Should I leave the manual install of cookie files in?

    @Chris K: "/sdcard/fortune" should be a folder, not a file.

    To mend this, try these steps:
    - Delete the "/sdcard/fortune" file/folder.
    - Uninstall Android's Fortune.
    - Install and start the latest Android's Fortune. This should install a "/sdcard/fortune/work" cookie file by default.
    - You can copy and set your own cookie files now.

    Right now i'm surfing on a PC and i didn't find the one or some other cookies (i would love some in german) i think i need to go to the google code side ?
    I have no problems with copying a file to the SD card, I use a cardreader for that.

    I installed it on my G1 and I couldn`t get it really run yet (it says there is no cookie file) if I look on the SD card where it should be written (sdcard/fortune) the file fortune is only 0 bytes.
