Remember back when it was safe to browse the internet? Neither do I. I do however, remember a time when it was only PCs that needed protection. These days, even mobile devices need all the security they can get. In fact, I am starting to wonder if I need security for my new Smart TV! It is time for Security 101.



Squirrel Super Soaker

If you ever have a squirrel problem and some free time, why not wage a war?  Kurt Grandis used Computer Vision to recognize birds at first, but his backyard feeder attracted squirrels.  Using a web cam, the recognition software, and a few other hardware tricks, he managed to have the computer shoot a super soaker at the squirrels!  Drawback:  Too many squirrels, so the soaker constantly ran out of water.

Civilization V Gods and Kings Error MoveFile Failed Code 3 Fix Solved

civilization-v-gods-and-kings-error-movefile-failed-code-3-fix-solved

An error occurred while trying to rename a file in the destination directory :
MoveFile failed; code 3.

  1. Install Civilization V on your C drive with a short name. I saved it as “Civ5” (c:\Civ5) and will reference it as such.
  2. Install any updates you want. I patched up and installed the other DLCS first
  3. Install Civilization V Gods and Kings in the same Civ5 folder. When prompted if you want to install in the same folder, hit yes.
  4. Install any remaining patches and play
  5. Error MoveFile Failed Code 3 is due to the fact that the path was too long in length when saved in Program Files. This is because there are way too many folders in Civilization.

    I hope this guide helps someone, as when making this test, my Civ V install went rogue and deleted half my programs/games when I was testing other solutions. ugh lol
