I love good 404 Page Not Found error pages. These are the web pages you encounter when you have landed on a bad link or wrong address. Really good 404 pages can be helpful to locate the information you want, with links to your site map and categories, but the best are the ones that amuse as well as entertain, such as the one I highlighted in The Beauty of a Good 404 Page Not Found Page.
Did you know that there are websites dedicated to collecting 404 Page Not Found error pages? They either link to them or provide screen shots of them. They are wonderful. Here is a list of Page 404 collections:
- The 404 Research Lab from Plinko
- Yahoo’s List of 404 Page Not Found Pages and Collections
- Meryl’s Notes: Collection List of 404 Page Not Found Errors
- Wikipedia’s 404 Error Explained
- A List Apart’s article on The Perfect 404 Page
Hate to tell you this, but that page ain’t here.
Seriously. It’s not.
404 baby. 40-freakin’-4.
I even tried multi,
which is much more than I do for most folks.
Most times, I just zap up a blank page
and give the old 404 rap,
But you, you’re special, baby.
And, if I could, I’d run off right now
and find the page you wanted.
Or, even better, run off with you
and screw the stupid page.
Have you found any amusing 404 Page Not Found Errors that entertain beyond just help the visitor track down what they are looking for?
