I have installed the Quotes module. This system allows for displaying of random quotes. I'm not doing that right now, but you can search for quotes, add new quotes, and so on. I have the functionality to import quotes in an odd tab-delimited format, or in fortune file format. For reference, you can find fortune files by googling for "fortune datfiles". The debian repository CVS is a good place to download them individually.
Today I upgraded Drupal from 4.6.x to 4.7.x. This came with some special problems, but none of them were in drupal itself, but in modules. To wit, the ecommerce module summoned satan all over itself; it is using the new method in drupal where modules can create their own database tables, and it's not creating them all. I went so far as to disable all the modules, manually remove the tables, and then put the modules back in - which changed nothing. I wasn't actually selling anything anyway, so I went ahead and kept the upgrade.
