Red cross on Vista network

Recently my vista display a red cross on the network indicator and I can’t recall what I’ve done or install. Weird thing is my network connection is working fine without any

interruption but the network icon just displaying red cross there is sometimes quite difficult to know if the network is working fine or not.

 

So I search the Google for any solution to fix it but failed to find any but on the found 1 from Microsoft and it does not provide any solution just ask to ignore the red cross on the network, here is the write-up from Microsoft

To work around this problem, you can safely ignore the red "X" over the connection icon that indicates that the network adapter is disconnected. The connection status is updated correctly even when the connection icon incorrectly displays a red "X."

What a good answer from Microsoft and i think they not going to fix it as Windows 7 is coming…think so. Here is the full article of the write-up.

Its a tired long day for today as I spend almost half a day to setup the Squid-2.6 in transparent mode with squidGuard and I think most of you will think that I’m that dumb takes so long to configure that. It’s a very good experience to learn that you always need to keep up to the latest update on Linux as if you have stopped playing with it you will loose out.

That’s why it took me so long till I found out what’s the problem. First there was problem with squidGuard that all the configuration was done perfectly but the filtering was not working, end up manage to find the problem was the blacklist was not build with .db format. Second problem was the new Squid configuration for transparent mode was different from the older version and much more simpler. Below I write up all the steps to configure transparent proxy with squidGuard.

Youtube turn upside down – April Fool or maintenance?

I was looking on some of the video on Youtube and I click on a video of the Hybrid car comparison, to my surprise the video come out to be upside down and I was thinking was it April fool jokes or what? So I choose another video but come out the same, then I send the link to my friend as I suspect could it be my pc problem or what ever but my friend also seeing the same thing.

 

But my friend told me that Youtube was doing a maintenance, so not sure if it cause by maintenance or April fool jokes. Does it happen to you?
