Just to say thankyou for choosing Python for the programing 101 mini series, It is the language I have the most experience with, and that is still less than enough to apply to real world application.

Question I don't know how large such a program would be but could you do a show to explain how to write a .py to get the computer to randomly select a image from a folder and set it as the desktop wallpaper each day ?
