Error Goblin is a free and portable Windows application so that you can check up on error codes when your net is down.
UPDATE: The publishers have decided to remove this Windows app. This appears to have happened within a couple of hours, of publishing this post. A message now appears saying:
“We have decided to remove our Windows app in favour of our iPhone app, we will be updating the Windows app in the future and will update this page when it is ready.”
Too bad. Hence the home page links are being removed and comments closed. But you can download it from Softpedia. Also check out these Windows Error Code Lookup Tools. This post on Windows Errors, System Error Messages and Codes may also interest you.
