If I see one 404 error page in an entire month that would be a pretty brisk clip. Not sure why, but I don't see many of them anymore.

meh, it didn't come up.

That ground ball was nothing. Buckner also missed out on some Wrestlemania 14 tickets that Pete Rose left him.

Buckner also missed catching Hammerin' Hank's record breaking 715.

Because (1) you use google and (2) you never type URLs anymore.

Probably the same reason why ISPs hijack DNS NXDOMAIN replies instead of letting you see an error. It's a better business move to redirect you to the site's main page.

Can't say I've been too happy with my DNS servers recently. Lots of 'resolving host' wait time, despite doing about half a dozen things to fix the problem. Hey, but the consumer wins if Comcast gets bigger, right?

Only if it's the only 404 error page I see today.

H2G2, Marvin the Paranoid Android, right?

That's pretty great.

Blue Fountain Media has a flash pacman game on their 404 page, which I always thought was nifty.

Very interesting use of the phrase "painfully funny".

Was one of those things setting up your own local caching DNS?

We'll get over it right around the same time the Cards get over Denkinger.

Original, yes.  Funny, no.

That's nice. Doesn't make up for the fact that the redesign makes an already horrible site even worse.

Yep. That cut the time down, but it there are still delays.

Hah, I /just/ got that 404 page yesterday or earlier today, awesome.
 
2014-04-17 08:21:55 PM
Best one I've ever seen, and dang it if I can't find it anymore, was on James Lilkes site a few years ago.  It was a screencap from the Star Trek episode "The Doomsday Machine" of the Commodore compltely sweaty and broken, with the caption, "It was here!  It's not anymore!"

/You had to be there.

Is it still funny if i have to Google it to figure out what it meant?

I see them all the time when I click on Sharepoint search results at work, because the farking admins won't clean up the farking crawler. Idiots.

Yes, but if you want REALLY funny, find out what it means, then watch the "Curb Your Enthisiasm" episode with Bill Buckner.
