Jidher li, fl-għerf infinit, Google għandhom karatteristika ta 'sigurtà li jista' jimblokka l-applikazzjoni milli jaċċessaw jew jużaw kont google tiegħek. I jista 'jara kif dan jista' jkun problema għall-utenti Google, b'mod partikolari l- Gtalk u Gmail utenti. Fil-każ tiegħi kien Piġini jkollhom kwistjoni ma 'l- Jabber servizz (li huwa teknikament parti mill GTalk). Sibt is-soluzzjoni wara ftit tħaffir. I kien sorpriż kif qodma il-kwistjoni kienet u kemm din il-karatteristika ilu jeżisti!

Li nisfruttaw il-kont u jiksbu applikazzjoni tiegħek online, użu page Captcha Google hawn.

Some of you might have noticed issues ma MSN/Live‘s servers yesterday. The problem was related to a specific protocol version of MSN. Some IM software have an automatic failover to use a different version of the protocolsbut apparently pidgin (my currentaggregateIM of choice) doesn’t do this by default. Adium (for Mac OS) uses the same libraries (libpurple) as pidgin and was also affected. I’m not sure what other software was affectedhowever pidgin is popular enough that many of my friends thought MSN was completely out of commission.

The easiest short-term solution is to install an alternative MSN protocol library and to switch to it on demand. The long-term solution would be to convince libpurple’s developers to build in a failover facility. I tried out msn-pecan, a plugin which is actually a fork of the built-in MSN protocol library. The plugin appears to be using the slightly older protocol version. The advantage of this is that you don’t have to recompile pidgin to switch between versions.

To adjust, once you’ve installed msn-pecan:

  • Restart pidgin
  • press Ctrl+A or Select Accounts -> Manage Accounts
  • select your MSN account and ensure that it is offline (very likely at the time) by unchecking the tickbox next to the account
  • click [Modify]
  • change theProtocoldrop-down box fromMSN” li “WLM
  • click [Save]
  • click the tickbox again to re-enable the account.

To change it back, do the same, except change the Protocol drop-down back toMSN”.

(xx:55:12) You feel a disturbance in the force
(xx:56:34) Tricky: Afternoon 🙂
(xx:05:54) anon: HI
(xx:08:19) anon has left the conversation.

Sometimes I think I shouldn’t let Piġini try to make me Jedi.
