Minecraft to reality?


My boys keep playing Minecraft every theír free minute, but neither them nor myself knew about this real world project where serious building projects are done in Minecraft to be tested before actual construction works. Check this up!

“Block by Block” is an innovative partnership between the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat), the UN agency promoting sustainable towns and cities, and Mojang, the makers of Minecraft.Block by Block involves young people in the planning of urban public spaces. Minecraft has turned out to be the perfect tool to facilitate this process. The four-year partnership will support UN-Habitat’s Sustainable Urban Development Network to upgrade 300 public spaces by 2016. The first pilot project in Kibera, one of Nairobi’s informal settlements is already underway.More information about UN-Habitat can be found on www.unhabitat.org. More information about Mojang can be found at www.mojang.com.

MySQL: #1146 – Table ‘xxx.xxxxx’ doesn’t exist

errorSometimes you get this type of error when you just changed the hoster or moved your database files physically to the new location:

#1146 – Table ‘xxx.xxxxx’ doesn’t exist

This error usually comes up when you try to import your data into database and your sql file that you import, has CREATE statement. Nothing scary. The folders containing files of your databases in /usr/local/mysql-x.x/ should have 755 permission BUT files inside of those folders should have permission 644.
