Remove Ubuntu Welcome Message

If you are tired of the standard ubuntu "message of the day" greeting here is how you can get rid of it in a nice and easy one-liner!

chmod -x /etc/update-motd.d/*

You can also change the message to your liking. The files in /etc/update-motd.d/ have a number prefix which dictates the order in which they are ran. You can put whatever you like in there. Personally I'm a fan of replacing the message with fortune -a for a nice treat every time I login.
