No idea what this means, but I thought I’d post it in case anyone else was having the same problem - don’t you just love spurious error codes?
I was trying for a while to sign on to MSN messenger but I kept getting error code 80048834 (ohhhh…that one….). After some help from Google I came across a forum post where a couple of people were having the same issue. Anyway, for people skimming this post I’ll jump straight to the solution…
Go to http://login.live.com, login, accept their terms, then try again. I did this and I was taken to “Page not found” at http://storage.msn.com (which I still can’t access), but at least I can now login. There was a post on the Microsoft Communities website maybe shedding some more light on the issue - it seems it could be something to do with the time on your PC being incorrect.
Please feel free to any any comments below.
Drupal 6 was released today! After having a play with the beta and release candidates…well, I don’t have to say; this really is a phenomenal release! Here are some of my favourite new features which I’m looking forward to using:
- Extended logging - You can set Drupal for OS level logging
- Batch API - A progress bar can track tasks running in the background through multiple HTTP requests
- Scripting from the command line - This is really cool! You can now run Drupal code through the command line
- Forum improvements - Granular permissions can allow more control over forum moderation
- Sticky table headers - Does what it says on the tin
- Drag and drop features - Again, the tin…
- CSS only theming - Define regions etc. in .info files without writing any php code, then set styles in CSS
Well done to everyone who has been clearly working hard on this!
It’s incredible how rapid the development of Drupal has become. Drupal 6 is only just around the corner and we’re already talking about what improvements and features we’d like to see in Drupal 7! Drupal 5 has been absolutely fantastic. I’ve found it not only a great content management system, but also an excellent framework for building applications.
I noticed recently that if you’re using POP with leave mail on server (LMOS) enabled, authenticating and downloading new messages can become progressively slower. So much so that the email client can even time out, leaving the mailbox locked so you can’t even log in again for a while.
As of Drupal 5.6 you will no longer be able to install the CMS onto a server with
register_globalsenabled. The notice on the Drupal website says:
We no longer support servers with the PHP directive register_globals set to on. Attempts to install Drupal 5.6 when register_globals is enabled will fail. Current installations will continue to function, but will display an error on administration pages and the status report.
