I was wondering if you would consider embedding error messages that made more sense
The following message I got the other day was: "Can't play track", to which my ironic response was "You don't say, so that's why I can't hear anything...".
The problem took care of itself with some rebooting but still, you have to admit that this particular error message is completely useless.
I know, it's not the end of the world, but meaningful error messages would make Spotify an even better product in my opinion.

You have a good point there. I often find myself frustrated with error messages that either don't give me any information which wasn't completely obvious or just contained a useless error code.
Maybe a list of error codes, phrases and their respective meanings (a bit more of a technical explaination) would be useful as well... then when we're trying to work out why something isn't working we could at least get some idea of what might be causing it.
Edit: Maybe add something about this to the Idea Exchange Board?? I won't do myself, it's your idea, your kudos

I'm getting the same thing. Rebooted and no change. 'Can't Play Track' and 'Search Failed'.
My internet connection is (obviously) fine and the site said the sevice if fine and dandy. Irritating.
Edit: Oh yeah, I'm in England.
