(from "Tribute to 404" at 404 Research Labs)
Quote
...404 believes in your abilities. It doesn't try to lose you in a crazy series of redirects, it challenges your problem-solving skills. It asks, "Now that you're here, what are you going to do?" 404 willingly hands you the reins. Have you ever just closed a window on 404? No! You've considered your options, exercised your reasoning skills, and firmly chosen a course of action to deal with your situation. When you successfully navigate 404, you feel the blood coursing in your veins, the wind in your hair, and it's good to be alive. 404 is life-affirming. When you find 404, you know that even though the thing you were looking for no longer exists, there is still 404, stepping in to fill the void.

Where there was darkness, there is now 404. And all is right with the world.

How many of us have bothered dressing up our 404 pages?

I have.  :D

I am working on an idea for a 'prize' for when you win.

Sorry Mouser, I got caught up in the excitement and simply posted a thumb of my favorite one. I'll remember to post a page screenie next time...

App:  :o (have you submitted this to 404 Research Labs? They'd love it!)

Mouser: do you happen to have a nifty 404? With Cody? Maybe that could be the next contest if there isn't!

I need to finish it and add a suitable prize before I can think about something like that.

I actually thought it would send me to a random page on your site, which I thought was kind of a cute idea. But prizes are good too. :D

It would have to be a virtual prize...and it would probably be a link of some sort.  ;)

Ok, if it is a link and it's a prize, that means it has to refer to a site (or page) that you think the person will take great joy in finding/browsing. I think i know the perfect page for that! Click here!! ;)

And here's a great idea for a 404 page, as well as an entertaining blog...

The End Of The Internet

Or how about TurnOffTheInternet...

And the final word...
