So there I was, looking at the list of windows open in my browser, when I saw a 404 Not Found in there. I selected it, and nothing appeared. I tried, and tried again, but nothing there, whereupon I Got Smart old-school style and Viewed Source, which revealed that usenetarchive.org had fed me this:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC “-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN”>
<title>404 Not Found</title>
<p>The requested URL /loading.php was not found on this server.</p>
<address>Apache/2.0.54 (Fedora) Server at www6.paypopup.com Port 80</address>
The pop-up ad that site tried to feed me failed to appear because of bad coding. Isn’t that lovely?
So: Bug, feature, or laff riot?
