    Error Goblin: Look Up Any Windows Or Mac Error Codes To Find Out What They Mean

    Link: Error Goblin

    I haven't tried this on any error codes I most often come across [haven't had any today]

    Anyone else care to give it a go? [Windows or Mac]

    I've tried it assuming it might work with error codes usually found in the event log (0x00000000 type of error codes) and all it did was list a whole load of HTTP error codes and what they mean.

    If I wanted HTTP error codes, there are plenty of sites with detailed info on these - tbh, this site seems a bit useless.

    EDIT: No, forget what I said above, I was being a numpty and typed in too many zeros. However, i'm still not sure why I got a whole load of HTTP error codes?!?!

    Just tried an failure code I don't know off by heart from Windows security logs that I needed to look today. FAIL: Got a bunch of STOP errors that were uhh.. hex numbers, but not mine. This is witless - when it's an error code no one cares about near misses, never mind far ones: we want the exact code or "sorry, not found".

    I got a Windows + Winsock list from an MS page somewhere and I also have a separate one for standard MS security log events (stuff like authentication failure 0xC0000064 = user does not exist). Rarely need either, so don't really see this site being useful (unlike say eventid.net) even if it does get more comprehensive coverage.

    Site provided by an iPhone app maker? Perhaps it's better for MACs?
