Customization, Upgradeability and Eternally Regenerative Software Administration

,----[ Quote ]
| Debian package maintainer, Luigi Gangitano, for 
| Drupal, a FOSS content management platform, did a 
| great job making the software both customizable 
| and maintainable. The package supports 
| configuration of multiple virtual hosts which can 
| all be upgraded at once! And the Debian drupal6 
| package stores the look-n-feel in 
| /etc/drupal/6/themes/ so that each siteâs GUI can 
| be customized without interfering with upgrades. 
| If only all web applications were built to be as 
| maintainable as Debianâs Drupal package!


Batch Process Photos with Phatch (Open Source)

,----[ Quote ]
| Virtually any photo manager out there lets you 
| perform mundane tasks like adjusting contrast, 
| adding a watermark, or applying effects to your 
| photos. But even the most powerful applications 
| like digiKam or F-Spot canât really help you when 
| you need to perform the same action (or a 
| sequence of actions) on dozens or hundreds of 
| photos. For those tasks you need a batch 
| processing utility like Phatch. This nifty tool 
| can perform no less than 35 different actions on 
| your photos, and its user-friendly graphical 
| interface makes it easy to create advanced multi-
| step batch rules (or action lists in Phatchâs 
| parlance).



How to build your own Linux distro

,----[ Quote ]
| Since Manchester University's Owen Le Blanc released MCC Interim Linux
| (generally agreed to have been the first Linux distribution), way back in
| 1992, there have been hundreds of ways to get the world's favourite free
| software operating system on to a computer. The diversity of alternatives
| reflects the diversity in the development community, with distros split along
| technical, functional, linguistic and even ideological lines.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
