http://code.google.com/p/androidsfortune/wiki/Help (topic "Where can I get cookie files?") explains where to get fortune files. If you send me a mail I can send you some too.
I'm sorry you feel this way. I'm currently investigating a problem with writing to the sd card and expect to have an update out soon. Your feedback is valuable to me.
@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.
@Chris K: I found some German cookies: http://code.google.com/p/androidsfortune/wiki/CookieLinks. Hope you find these useful.
