A New Kind of 404 Page Not Found Result

I love 404 Page Not Found error pages. Not always, but when I encounter a cute one, I enjoy it while it lasts.

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. I’ll put a list of some of these below.

What brought this on? Well, a friend who I got interested in 404 Pages emailed me this 404 Error Page from something called “Softlab” with a Greece extension. It features a javascript that scrolls out a one-sided conversation with you.

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.

It goes on and on. It’s wonderful, and the script is in the source of the page.

Here are some other sources for great 404 Page Not Found Error Pages.

    Sorry, but GR is for Greece, not for Germany (DE).
