International Day Against DRM

Today, May 6th 2014, is a Day against Digital Right Management. I believe that you should be able to read and interact with your content when you want, where you want, and how you want. PacktPub as one of EBook Publisher is also celebrating this day. They have published DRM-Free ebook since their first in 2004. To show their continuing support for Day Against DRM, Packt Publishing is offering all its DRM-free content at $10 for 24 hours only on May 6th, which is today – that’s all 2000+ eBooks and Videos at www.packtpub.com.

In this post, I’d like to give you some review about a book which I just read. This book is about Object Relational Mapping (ORM) in PHP. As we’ve known, PHP is a favourite web programming language, and mostly, they work with a database too. Some programmers use PHP native database API (php-mysql, php-postgresql), another programmers use ADODB to simplify their works.

In Windows, you can set your wallpaper as a slideshow. So if you have many pictures and want to make all of them your wallpaper, you can do it with slideshow wallpaper. One of my friend said that Ubuntu already has it by default. But when i use Linux Mint, i can’t find it in wallpaper selection menu. So i search for how to use slideshow wallpaper in Linux Mint.

And then i found Desktop Drapes. It is a gnome-based application that can make auto-change wallpaper based on your pictures collection. Overall, it is a good application. But minimum interval for 1 wallpaper is only 5 minutes. In Windows you can have about 30 seconds interval.

To use it, you can install it from repositories with this command :

apt-get install drapes

Below is example screenshots of Drapes running in my computer.
