for Philippe Charest's slide_show(karamba)

It shows randomly the 10 latest babes of the day from rock103 website.

script botd.sh to be copied to /etc/cron.hourly or /etc/cron.daily it's up to you and then run it for the first time only
replace the Philippe Charest's(slide_show) files with the ones in this package
you must have imagemagick a /var/tmp readable and writeable, an internet connection, a linux, a computer and an attraction for women.

Hi,I would like to ask the creator of this,if its possible to make this theme work with other websites by editing the both.sh script file.
What do I have to change there in order to make it work with other server dir.
Obviously the wget adresses,maybe something at the picture variables?
var0=$(date +%m%d%y)
var1=$(date --date '1 day ago' +%m%d%y)
Is ¨date¨ coresponding to the date the jpg file was uploaded?And if so,if I leave it untouched,will it work with another server?
Excuse this poor noob,who is trying to learn more about programming.I know about the basics.

ok,I got it,the picture variables corespond by the name,which is the date 1 day ago or two days ago,etc.
This means that I will either have to find a website with such names for the pictures or change each of the variables in order to fit to a different server.
Maybe i am missing something.I saw the output of the script and I know that it basicaly downloads the pictures by their name to a .tmp subdirectory,then it changes their size and adds them to its dir (var/tmp/img_botd).

There are few different ways to edit this file,I am wondering which is best..

This is a fine piece of script.I think that if someone takes it and edits it,it will become a great karamba theme for collecting images from different websites.Only if i knew how to make a gui box for users to change the variables and the wget url adress...

indeed!I would like to see more of this kind of themes.The slideshow script can be used with some news reading one + if you have a customisation that is simple (ini file or gui),where you can specify a link/website ===>This will make the ultimate,THE ULTIMATE karamba theme that pawns them all.

This has got to be one of the sweetest pieces of eye-candy in the box..

I have some Suggestions though. Would be nice to be able to adjust the opacity of the images and also the size of the applet as well

Think Im gonna get a belly-ache from all the sweetness this is bringing me :D
