I’m fascinated by 404 error pages (not the bulk standard default ones), I’m not too sure why. It could be something to do with the fact that they’re secretive, supposed to remain hidden from view and are often a creative output. So, naturally, I loved reading Jim Amos’ recent post entitled The Great Custom 404 Page Adventure. Fascinating stuff.
