Microsoft break support.microsoft.com for Squid users

It seems that Microsoft have managed to break their support site for anyone behind a Squid proxy server. Danny has posted a fix for this on his website, though for newer version of squid a slightly different approach is required.

# Fix support.microsoft.com
acl fixSupportMicrosoft dstdomain support.microsoft.com
reply_header_access Accept-Encoding deny fixSupportMicrosoft
request_header_access Accept-Encoding deny fixSupportMicrosoft

What you’re doing there is preventing the Microsoft support site from gzip’ing their content.
