These are actually a couple of years old, so avid users of Flickr may have already seen them. I just came across them for the first time last night, however, via a link on Hacker News and found them very amusing, so I thought I’d share. They make a nice, light Friday post.
The following are illustrations from cartoonist Adam Koford (who seems to spend most of his time now writing a comic strip about a pair of hobo LOLcats). They’re rather ingenious illustrations of HTTP errors. I’ve included a few of most clever below, but there are more at the original Flickr set (16 to be precise).
Which are your favorites? I rather like “400 Bad Request” (pictured at right) and “405 Method Not Allowed” (not pictured). Adam, if you’re reading: please make these available as a set of prints or postcards!
408 Request Timeout
413 Requested Entity Too Large
415 Unsupported Media Type
Remember to see all 16 illustrations at the original Flickr set. Then come back here to let us know which are your favorites.
