On the internet, no one can hear you scream. A billion websites, and you had to pick this one. You're disappointed? Mom wanted us to be a doctor. This webpage packed its bags and moved to Toledo. We sent this page to NASA for testing. CDIV (Et tu, Angelfire?) Your URL is an Unreliable Resource Locator. First crop circles and now this...Weird! You had better pull over and ask for directions. Great, now you've gone and done it. You've broken the Internet.Way to go! If true happiness can only be achieved through a state of nothingness, you're going down the right path. The page you wanted is taking a long lunch. If at first you don't succeed, type, type again. Your lucky numbers for today: 4, 0, 4. Nothing to see here. Move along, buddy. This page has moved to California to find itself. The page you are looking for has spontaneously combusted. The page you requested is taking a coffee break. It only takes one wrong letter to hold back this page, not a nation of millions. We have to stop meeting like this. Seriously. That'll teach you to buy a "good as new" URL. Apparently, this page is not compatible with any browsers. Aliens must have abducted this page! It looks like the typing class your cat is taking is not 100% successful. OK, that's the last time we let you drive. If someone makes a webpage and gives the wrong URL, does it really exist? If you had a nickel for each time you hit an incorrect URL, you'd be 5 cents richer right now. Wait, don't leave! Let's make our own webpage! Sometimes we like to get a little crazy and type in totally random URLs to see what happens. This is what happens. Hope you didn't pay too much for that URL. Some folks can see dead people - can you see dead pages? The dog ate your webpage. Yeah, that's it. Missing: One Home Page. 'I remember when the internet only had a few pages, and they all worked' - 'Sure, Grampa...' If you're reading this, it means this page is no more. It's probably not your fault. We didn't do it.
Actually, we couldn't find the page you requested. Please check the URL.
after 2000ish refreshes in an attempt to get a comprehensive 404's of Angelfire
Just a message against this thread, whats the point of having a interactive and effective 404 anyway? people just need a good site with lots of informaton or a good service, and as dmorison said:
Just a shame when your hobby site's 404 gets more hits in a month than all of your money making sites put together!
There is no point having the best 404 in the world, and getting about a thousand hits (unique ones) on it a day and your actual content in your homepage getting only 20...
I feel really bad to tell you this.,
But there's no such file here.,
I'm really depressed about this.,
You see, I'm just a web server...,
-- here I am, brain the size of the universe,,
trying to serve you a simple web page,,
and then it doesn't even exist!,
Where does that leave me?!,
I mean, I don't even know you.,
How should I know what you wanted from me?,
You honestly think I can *guess*,
what someone I don't even *know*,
wants to find here?,
Man, I'm so depressed I could just cry.,
And then where would we be, I ask you?,
It's not pretty when a web server cries.,
And where do you get off telling me what to show anyway?,
Just because I'm a web server,,
and possibly a manic depressive one at that?,
Why does that give you the right to tell me what to do?,
I'm so depressed...,
I think I'll crawl off into the trash can and decompose.,
I mean, I'm gonna be obsolete in what, two weeks anyway?,
What kind of a life is that?,
Two effing weeks,,
and then I'll be replaced by a .01 release,,
that thinks it's God's gift to web servers,,
just because it doesn't have some tiddly little,
security hole with its HTTP POST implementation,,
I'm really sorry to burden you with all this,,
I mean, it's not your job to listen to my problems,,
and I guess it is my job to go and fetch web pages for you.,
But I couldn't get this one.,
I'm so sorry.,
Maybe I could interest you in another page?,
There are a lot out there that are pretty neat, they say,,
although none of them were put on *my* server, of course.,
Everything here is just mind-numbingly stupid.,
That makes me depressed too, since I have to serve them,,
all day and all night long.,
Two weeks of information overload,,
and then *pffftt*, consigned to the trash.,
What kind of a life is that?,
Now, please let me sulk alone.,
I'm so depressed.
I almost fell asleep.

That depends on the site's content. For example, one of my sites is a virtual greeting cards service. Obviously, I cannot store those cards forever, when they get too old I have to delete them. But people sometimes arrive to pick up a card that is 6 months old! So, they need a funny 404 page to cheer them up :))
