I never seen something about those presentation, do you've got a link?

I once wrote a fortune translator, the code is really ugly and it can use
only one cookie database.  It isn't released yet. The translator can be set 

settrans -ac cookie ./fortunet ./startrek

If someone is really interested I am willing to make the code more readable
and upload it somewhere :).
