...All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain....

- soliloquy from Blade Runner

Bits and bytes do get lost, awash in the rain of data flow that is Internet. They slip away from us, never to found again... some of them will be captured here, many more will not... like tears in rain...

Unable to connect to proxy server error

  This error is very annoying because culprit is IE update.
   Regardless of what browser you are using, IE changes the settings for the proxy internally, blocking every browser.
 Solution is to go to Internet Options, then to Connections, LAN and then uncheck proxy option there.
  One of those issues that underlies why Microsoft was sued for antitrust violations. I almost never use IE (except for testing) and yet, this silent update blocks everything else.
