404 from Hugh

404 messages can be annoying, confusing, utilitarian and boring. But check out the cool 404 message on www.hughstimson.org.1

  1. A 404 code is the type of error message you get when you go to a page on a website that doesn’t exist.

    Thank you.

    My first thought was to get the “404” number out of there: who the hell knows what a 404 error is anymore anyway? Then I changed my mind.

    I’ve had a problem with 404 messages recently. I changed my html page into php so I’ve got a bunch of urls coming in with errors. I should think of making a custom page for that one day also.
