saydate is a Linux shell program that talks the date and system uptime. saydate was adapted from saytime.sh (shell version of saytime, by david@eng.sun). Sound recording is not necessary for running saydate but it is useful if you want to record your own voice in place of mine.

Check to see if your system supports sounds through soundcard by running the folowing code snippet:
# record 4 seconds of audio from microphone

dd bs=8k count=4 sample.au

# play back sound

cat sample.au >/dev/audio

To install saydate just do the following three steps:

1.) Unpack the archive by typing 'tar xzvf saydate*'
2.) Type 'cd saydate*' to change into the saydate directory. Check the Makefile in the saydate directory for the correct paths to your manpage-directory (either /usr/man/man1, or /usr/share/man/man1) and doc-directory (either /usr/doc or /usr/share/doc), and uncomment the correct entries.

3.) Become root by typing 'su' and the root-password.
Then type 'make install' to install saydate (you must be in the saydate directory for this!).
