Good Point: 3 May 2006

This has got to be the singular best 404 page I’ve ever seen. It manages to get its message across in dozens of languages, including C (“return ENOENT”), BSD user (“The server is running Linux. What do you expect?”), Linux (“That’s fixed in subversion.”), Klingon (“De’teywI’ ‘agh vonlu’.”), and Defcon Goons (“Dog Balls Niner!”).

I’ve been holding out and not buying a Nintendo DS for a number of years, mostly because of a confluence of lack of funds and reason: I’m not often in need of some good portable gaming, what with either being working or at home, where I have my PC and PS2. But now I’m seriously getting one for the worst of all reasons: the new Pokemon game. Plus I feel like such a loser when my younger cousin and her parents have DSes.

    Good Lord, you post a lot. I was reading your previous post, clicked back to GNO, then back here and you had posted.

    So you are saying you didn’t get the DS for the game where every problem can be solved with dancing? I think that beats(ha!) out pokemon.

    Just real languages? They’ve included Pirate, American South slang, and binary! Very funny page!
