404 - The error page

Anyone who spends any amount of time on the internet will be familiar with the 404 error. It's the semi-blank page thrown up by a webserver when the requested page cannot be found. I learned a bit about the history of the 404 error from this recent TED talk from Renny Gleason. I will share this gem from it:

"A whole set of relationship errors, which, when I started digging into them, it looks almost like a checklist for a sex therapist or a couples counselor. You sorta get down there to the bottom and things get really dicey."
