Despite working at a website, we at Catster aren’t especially tech savvy, which is one of the consequences of thinking intently about cats all day. But recently we’ve been slinging around Hypertext Transfer Protocol response status codes like we’re on a Google bus and Mark Zuckerberg just got on with burritos for everyone.
You know what http status codes are — here’s one: 404. 404 is that horrible thing you see when you click a link and you go to a page that doesn’t exist. To put that in terms you’re familiar with — cat terms — it’s this:
There are dozens of other http status codes, we now know. We know them because the same person who made that beauty up there — Flickr user GirlieMac — did countless others, all of them hilarious little riddles to figure out, all of them featuring cats. This is high-level geek stuff brought to the masses. Learn them well — you never know when you’ll be stranded in the Stanford cafeteria.
Laugh with us:
