Nice Errors

Every now and then something goes wrong with the Internet and an Error message occurs. Of course that's frustrating, because most often you visit a website on purpose. What's even more frustrating are those cryptic 404 error Message which nobody (except IT Guys) really understands. Not very userfriendly. But with the emergence of web 2.0 and social media this has started to change. Things still go wrong and you can't reach the website you are looking for, but the error messages have become somewhat more entertaining. Which often let's me smile and forget my frustration about the error itself. It's not a big thing but it might help a little to give your company a little bit of a human touch.

Here are some "nice" errors I have collected over the past months.
