copy&paste to the opened motodmaker program, set colors etc..
choose options, raw and reset, save to file, edit the file (notepad2 or notepad++) show non-printed chars. replace \\par with empty string, and line end to linux format add one more space on top and remove the / or \\ on end of file, add empty line at the end.
use putty:
run
sudo touch /etc/motd


sudo chown karako:karako /etc/motd


use winscp and notepad2 or notepad++ as default editor,
and pass the content (not the not printable chars. are important..)


bring back default ownership..
