Error’d: Attention required

Microsoft ActiveSync - Notes: attention required.

What a tremendous error message I received the other day while trying to synchronize Outlook with my O2 Xda Orbit (running Windows Mobile 6). In the status column opposite the Notes icon I got the message: Attention required.

Above it, against my profile (Home) written in red the same message: Attention required. But this one was a link.

So I clicked it. And got a pop-up window with the meaningful message: Notes: attention required.

Kind of wish I hadn’t bothered now! Still, at least I gave it some attention.

There’s some folks I know who could really do with that alert window — actually, not so much for them but those around them!

  1. That icon, young Padawan, is courtesy of the UltraMon application which works with multiple monitors and allows me to send the current window to another monitor.

    On my home setup it sends it from 1 to 2, or vice versa. At work (with a 3 screen setup) it gives me an option of which screen to shove the window off to.

  2. my favourite at home is “there is a network problem, please contact your network supervisor”. Came across your page while looking for Orbit 2 photos. Have Orbit 1 and trying to decide whether to go for Orbit 2 or N95 for my upgrade. Nice site.

  3. ah! Yes master, I believe I have heard of such program.
    Basically what I have in Ubuntu by default 😛 …though I only have virtual desktops and one monitor (well laptop screen), haven’t got the monitors/cash to go the full hog of 4 desktops = 4 screens
