A WordPress plugin which displays a random verse from the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam on admin pages. The plugin incorporates text from Edward FitzGerald’s translation (source: Gutenberg project) and is based on the Hello Dolly plugin distributed with WordPress.
Not very useful, but it’s my first WordPress plugin :-) And you too may like a gentle reminder of your mortality while administering your WordPress site. It works with WordPress 2.5.1 but should work with other recent versions.
Similar to the above, this plugin displays a random proverb from a collection of over 800 first published in 1663. (Source: Gutenberg project).
