Catalog Your Books, Games and More Into Your Own Searchable ‘Library’ With Libib

Despite my constant claims that I’m going to move to an all-digital library, I still buy a ton of books. I’ve started to embrace the fact that I like having physical copies of things. Besides just loving act of holding a book while I’m reading it, it also makes things a ton easier to share with friends.Read more…

Show HN: A Build System for Packaging Applications in LXC Containers

Automating Container Builds.
Flockport supports LXC containers. They offer a more sensible container model with a standard OS environment compared to alternatives.
For those who are wondering what is a container build and why would you need it, you don’t. Most container platforms ship with base OS images that you can use to install and run your apps.
Flockport also provides an app store that you can download prebuilt container apps ready for use or deployment.
Container builds simply automate the process of installing and configuring an application in a container that you would do manually. It is a set of instructions to install and configure the application. This allows you to make builds repeatable and share them.
Flockport supports 2 container build models. The first maintains compatability with other build systems like Docker that existing container users may be familiar with. The second offers far more advanced build capabilities including linked & multiple builds,

Walt Disney Animation Studios Datasets

This data set contains everything necessary to render a version of the Motunui island featured in the 2016 film “Moana”. The scene is chosen to represent some of the challenges we currently encounter in a typical production environment. Most notably it includes large amounts of geometry created through instancing as well as complex volumetric light transport. There are many other challenges which are frequently encountered in production rendering and which are not represented in this scene (examples include motion blur and a large number of light sources to name just two). Still, we hope that this will be a useful dataset for developing, testing and benchmarking new rendering algorithms.

The entire data set is broken into three packages :

The raw data necessary to render just one frame is available in the “Base” package. [45 GB download / 93 GB unpacked]
The additional animation data necessary to render the entire shot is
