Random Link for Wordpress Blogs

I recently started my Photo Blog, after various considerations i choosed Wordpress for it, currently i have more than 20 photos posted on it which is not actually a big number but i found that the older images or posts will never be seen to the readers as they don't appear on the frontpage for more than 4-5 days, which created a requirement of creating a Random Link on frontpage to show a Random post to the user if he wants to and this began search for a module or a plugin as its said in wordpress.

But No Luck i found various plugins but i needed something very very simple so i thought going by the code which lead me using the following code in my header.php to create a Random Post link

<?php
$randomPost = $wpdb->get_var("SELECT guid FROM $wpdb->posts WHERE post_type = 'post' AND post_status = 'publish' ORDER BY rand() LIMIT 1");

Where .deb files are stored in Ubuntu ?

We always hear people saying ubuntu works well only when you have a strong internet connection as the Install CD doesn't contain all the packages required agreed now a CD cannot contain all the packages you require so you need to download the packages but there is a clear misunderstanding among new users that they always need to download these packages, Its essential to download them once but if you are reinstalling ubuntu on new machine you need not download these packages all over again if you have installed required packages on one of the machine you can use the content of below listed directory for installation

/var/cache/apt/archives

this directory contains the debian packages download by the apt-get :)

so have fun reuse the content for each install and save time and bandwidth
