Just where in the system do I find
1)what time zone the system is set to,and why
this is superseded by UTC every time I return
to BSD from Linux and not when I do the opposite,
and
2) the texts that get randomly displayed on login
in between the "motd" and the first prompt?

The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.

I note that the UEFI bios is already displaying
the UTC time on rebooting after the Linux sojourn
before I select the BSD partition (which is the
default).

This appears fixed now...

....but just where are all these BSD hints stored en
masse so I can read through them all by choice and
not be at the mercy of which one shows up at any
given login?
