Random Background||After sending a screenshot
of my desktop to Rusty Wagner, he mentioned that he had the same image.
We got to talking about it, and he said that he had a program he wrote

the background changing and DirectX detection code and created a new GUI

xdisc-0.1.0.tar.gz ||When I tried using Linux as my desktop
OS, I needed a way to easily play a directory of MP3s. Winamp has an
excellent plugin, Instant Disc,
that gives a popup menu with all of your MP3 directories as
albums, along with adding global hotkeys. This program will play a
directory of MP3s in XMMS. The directory either be specified, or chosen
randomly from a given starting directory. The menu listing and hotkey
functionality can be accomplished via some simple scripting and the
window manager or a program that provides similar functionality. A
script and instructions for using it with Blackbox and bbkeys are
included. Other window managers or desktops such as KDE should be just
as easy to get going. Ideally this would be a full plugin for XMMS.
