Det verkar som, i oändliga visdom, Google har en säkerhetsfunktion som kan blockera ett program från åtkomst eller med ditt Google-konto. Jag kan se hur detta kan vara ett problem för Googles användare, i synnerhet deras GTalk och Gmail användare. I mitt fall var det Pidgin har ett problem med Jabber tjänsten (som tekniskt ingår i GTalk). Jag hittade lösningen efter lite gräva. Jag blev förvånad över hur gammal frågan var och hur länge den här funktionen har funnits!

För att låsa upp kontot och få din ansökan online, använda Googles Captcha sida här.

Some of you might have noticed issues med 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
  • klick [Modify]
  • change theProtocoldrop-down box fromMSN” till “WLM
  • klick [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”.

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