  • 404 pages are typically boring and dull, or fall down to your browser just showing you an error message. K International plays around with this and adds a little humour to your day, even if you have stumbled into the Web's abyss.

  • Web designer Alessio Atzeni goes one step further by creating a full-screen cracked-screen effect. While it's more effective on old-school CRT monitors, the graphics are impressive and remains one of the simplest but most visually impressive error pages seen.

  • Where's the hiss?

    The Seecoy site would be better (or more annoying -- take your pick) if it had an audio track of white noise.

      But then maybe that was their intent!

    Gog.com's rip in the space time continuum

    Mark Dijkstra's play on the classic "I went here, and all I got was this lousy..."

    LEGO's figurines all in a panic over the 404 Error

    Foradian's Hypercube zero (in HTML5) .. very impressive
