stupid error messages

| 1 Comment

Right after posting about the "sorry, no Firefox allowed here" message from our courseware system, I went to the main RIT portal site. On the first page, right where I usually see the balance on my RIT ID card (spendable at campus restaurants and the bookstore), was this oh-so-helpful message:

If this portlet continues to fail please contact the ITS Helkdesk with the following message: There is a problem receiving FSG balances. Please check if squid is functional.

The obvious response, of course, is simply to welcome my new squid overlords.
