MyLot 404 Page - The unhappy server

Has anyone else seen the 404 page for this site already? If not, you've got to! The title on the page is "Another Error 404 File is Missing in Action." and then there is a link taking you back to the homepage entitled "Let the server sulk by going back to home?" But in between these two is a space where the server is talking to you, complaining, and whining about being a server. It takes about 10 minutes for the server to stop typing. That has to be the best 404 page I've ever seen. It almost makes it OK that I didn't find the page I wanted to :D If you want to see it, type in some random characters after http://www.mylot.com/ in the address bar.

This is funny to see anytime I do get the error. The first time I did get it I was chuckling with the message to the point that I took time to sit and continually read the message. At first I though something was wrong with the server but then realized it is a funny way of saying the server can't find what we are requesting.

What an epic masterpiece. I get entertained just reading how the "Server" makes a rant. It goes to show that MyLot is all about letting out what you think even on simple errors like the page could not be found. I'm really loving this site.

I never had actually experienced this until I read this discussion and tried it out myself. It really is amusing and funny, and as you have said the best 404 page I've ever seen. It is different from the common 404 pages I've had experienced before. This site is really wonderful in many different ways.

hi mayuko isnt that just too funny and sort of fun to read? I have come across it several times and just had to laugh as the server was getting more and more upset. I really appreciated the sense of humor for getting a 404 page.usually when I get one I am teed off and grumbling out loud. but this time I really enjoyed myself having a laugh.

That is something that is rather interesting. It is different from the actual page cannot be found page. Something new. Not that I'd like to see that page all that often, but its nice to really see something rather new. The usual 404 pages just seem rather bland and just inspire a lot of rage. This inspires some amount of amusement with me to say the least. The page suggested that I try texting it. I just wonder how many different combination of that message there are. That is just one of those things that I would have never thought about. That was a good one, I'll give it that. Most certainly I will give it some points for originality to say the very least. So I'll take my hat off for myLot for that.
