How to get back to play.spotify.com old web player using Chrome

https://www.reddit.com/r/spotify/comments/5xxf5g/how_to_get_old_spotify_web_player_ui_back_on/

Add the chrome extension https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/user-agent-switcher-for-c/djflhoibgkdhkhhcedjiklpkjnoahfmg?utm_source=chrome-app-launcher-info-dialog

Add a custom user agent called IE10 like this

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/7.0; rv:11.0) like Gecko


Then mark spotify.com to permanently spoof this for spotify.com domain


And don't forget the old version supports hot keys too

Visual Studio Work Item Images broken

The case of the missing image…

image

Turns out this was due to my old windows credentials being cached on the tfs server credentials cache.

To fix this, I logged onto the tfs server directly via my admin account and updated the credentials there in the windows credentials manager.

Also ran fiddler in the background and cleared the winnet cache as well

Then it refresh a few times on the work item ticket back in visual studio, and hey presto they are all showing again.

DELL 968 Printer problem–Cartridge slams against printer wall

Fix was as simple as removing the cartridges, then turing off the printer at the plug socket on the wall, then squeezing the drive belt and computer cables that connects to the cartridge compartment, with my finger and thumb a few times.

Many thanks to the forums for posting this fix here, has saved me the cost of a new printer …
