Blender render at 60 fps of earth flyover with it exploding at the end 1080p

Here is an animation rendered in Blender 2.7, with the internal renderer, where the camera orbits around the earth and then pulls back for when the earth explodes. The video is rendered at 60 frames per second, but Youtube will only show the original size at this frame-rate, so there is also a 1280x720 resolution version that was uploaded along with this one. The camera does move a bit strangely before the explosion, but I didn't feel like sitting by for a few days waiting for the scene to render again.

360 Degree water simulation rendered in Blender 3D Cycles with Water Uber Shader

Here is a 360 degree re-render of the previous water simulation, but this time I decided to give the Water Uber Shader(WUS) a try and it certainly seems to do a better job than the glass shader. When it comes to doing an animation, the WUS does have one big disadvantage, which is that it takes quite a bit longer to render. When I have been looking at various Blender tutorials, I have noticed that there are some people who like using the compositor to add what they think are some cool effects to their renders.

Upgrade Owncloud to Nextcloud the quick way (with included surprises)

In this video I am upgrading an installation of Owncloud to Nextcloud on a Centos virtual machine. I have seen another video where they performed the upgrade by using Filezilla to change the files, but this took a long time, so I was then motivated to do a demonstartion of how to do it the easy way, so that people will not think that it is a long or difficult process. I did come across some surprises along the way, so it will be worth giving this a watch if you are deciding to make the jump from Owncloud to Nextcloud.

Here are the links and commands that were used in the video:

DataTables Library Example Ajax Application in Codeigniter on Centos

Here is a video for installing a Codeigniter build onto Centos, that has had the Paul Zepernick server side processing Datatables library added to it, in order to make available a ready made application that shows how to use it.By default the library does not give any help for creating your own links or buttons on the rows, so I have patched it so that custom HTML can be added into each row, with the row id then being applied to any placeholders that are added.
