So I’ve had this problem with Windows Live Messenger since it’s release.
In WLM 2011 (version 15.4) they introduced a new feature that integrates with Facebook, which I
initially didn’t like, but now I like it! Only problem was that the feature that shows Facebook galleries within WLM always failed on access with Error code: 0x80042f0f after it comes up with “Loading album via Facebook”
After many months of it bugging me, I sorta gave up. Until now.
Whilst on holiday in South Australia, I noticed that my laptop did not exhibit the same problem (though I had tried it at home).
So obviously it was a problem with my internet connection (I used mobile broadband on holiday).
Today, I ran a Wireshark on my LAN connection when the error comes up and I managed to find the conversation and found some interesting information. Apparently the return page from that error was actually a HTML Error 417; a quick Google got me to this page
Simply put, Windows Live Messenger is asking for a specific header response. Apparently my Squid proxy (on my IPFire box) isn’t playing nice. WLM wants confirmation (Expect 100-continue), but Squid instead sends out an error message, and thus WLM doesn’t get what it expects and fails.
So to fix it, we need to put
In the squid.conf file (‘/var/ipfire/proxy’ in IPFire)
Although you should really put it in ‘/var/ipfire/proxy/advanced/acls/include.acl’ and reset the proxy from the web interface (if you change squid.conf directly you will overwrite it if you change anything in the web configuration page)
This will tell Squid to ignore the request, thus it will not send an error, and BAM its working!
Great price, stylish yet simple, Sturdy but flexible.
Colouring is quite nice; quite realistic, although it hasn’t quite been finished properly (bits of the veneering are rough around the edges).
Biggest issue I had was how to build the thing. Instructions weren’t very explicit and I would dearly like to know why they chose allen headed screws.
Other than that, it fits my gaming keyboard and mouse easily side by side, and the keyboard tray slides all the way in. I would rather the keyboard tray was deeper so that It would be a bit more stable and for extra paper space but that’s just me.
If you see this desk at the Officeworks store, I wouldn’t take that as a good indication of the actual quality of this desk. I went to 2 different stores and both were a very poor representation (broken caster wheels, scratched veneer etc.) The actual desk is fine (I can’t even see how you could break the caster wheels off)
Last thing I guess is annoying is the height. I would have liked it to be a little taller. I’ve got a high-back leather chair and it basically needs to be on the lowest hight to fit my legs comfortably.
Anyway, overall I am quite satisfied and definitely recommend this desk to anyone with space constraints and looking for a budget option!
First thing I should say is: This is a GREAT mouse.
I’ve always used Microsoft mice (since I ditched a Logitech set that needed new batteries one a week), my last being the Wireless Laser 3000 set. This purchase (along with the G510) marks my return to Logitech products.
That said, there is an issue with functionality.
The biggest problem I have is reaching the forward button. I can reach it fine when I use a gaming grip (using my whole palm), but when I’m just gripping it lightly (with my palm lightly – which is most natural, for me), I cannot reach the forward button.
I know this is a performance mouse, and it’s primarily for gaming (and it does gaming really well by the way), but even gamers browse the internet, read documents/email etc. Anyway, I changed the assignments so that the zoom button is back and the back button to forward; It works fine that way, and I’m okay with it.
Now the bad stuff is out of the way there’s plenty of good stuff to comment on.
Firstly, the accurateness of this mouse, its just awesome (compared any other mice I’ve ever tried). Then there’s the hyper-scrolling, its awesome, and great if your a fiddler like I am :D. Next, there’s the recharging function, very convenient and means this mouse could even pay for itself in batteries.Lastly, the unifying adapter; Damn its small! And although it doesn’t penetrate my PC’s case and the desk very well, its small enough to go in the front USB port, allowing the signal to have a clear line of site.
Overall, I’m very happy with this mouse and would happily recommend it to anyone.
Well done Logitech!
