Open Source Programmers Stink At Error Handling

MrBogus Re:Commercial software does it differently (610 comments)

In addition to the load-balanced server explaination, I occassionally hit a IE (4/5/6) bug where it gets confused and thinks it's in "offline" mode.

You immedately get the 404 page, but when you press reload, it goes 'online' and finds the page. Something to do with going to localhost pages -- haven't quite figured it out yet.
