Google "404 Unavailable Page" Unavailable

E-mail Print PDF

Since I began using the Web when it was merely a curious new experiment to expand on the research possibilities the Internet was offering through tools such as Usenet, FTP, Archie and Veronica, I've seen many clever and amusing custom "Error 404 - Page Not Found" error messages, however one I just saw this morning from search giant Google may be the most surprising ever, and especially funny to my fellow technology nerds everywhere.

While researching Google's Caffeine search tweaks, I used Google.com to search for references to the service:

Google.com Search Results For Google Caffeine

Clicking on the first result, Google's own servers returned the following amusing error message:

Google '404 Unavailable Page' Unavailable

What does it say about a company as large and successful as Google when their own custom "Unavailable" message is itself unavailable? :-)
