HTTP Status Cats

You are reading this on a web page so the odds are near certain that you’ve seen a HTTP status page at some time of your browsing life. The dreaded “page not found” uh, page, is HTTP status 404. Basically, a HTTP status is a 3-digit number (depending on the error/info) that a web page ‘replies’ to requests from other web entities, which is often a web browser. There are probably a few hundred of them and we only actually see a few in our normal travels and travails on the intertubes.

It was inevitable that there would come a melding of cats and HTTP status codes. (is there anything a cat doesn’t make better?)

429 Too Many Requests

The following error is actually part of the Hyper Text Coffee Pot Control Protocol (HTCPCP/1.0)

418 I Am a Teapot

"Any attempt to brew coffee with a teapot should result in the error code "418 I'm a teapot". The resulting entity body MAY be short and stout."

I can relate:

204 No Content

A common error code in our house

More after the fold

406 Not Acceptable

This error code often precedes the HTTP 666 Clawed Demon From Hell code

401 Not Authorized

At least the sign is low enough for cats to read

This is a serious error, ok?

200 Ok

Ok Cat is OK, seriously ok. Really

And the error code we all know and uh, know…

404 Not Found

If you look carefully you can see a cat in this picture
