      I was on my way to work, driving from Ann Arbor to Warren, and saw someone pass with a license plate that said HTTP418. Decided to google 'HTTP418 license plate' when I got in, and sure enough it brings me here. The circle of life is now complete. Ironically enough, that's usually the part of my drive where my cell phone starts lighting up with Nagios errors regarding Apache. +1 for the status code selection. I wonder if 404 is taken.

      I honestly didn't expect to hear about a sighting for a long time! Hooray!

      Get this: HTCPCP is taken! HTTP404 is also taken (you can check the database live at services.sos.state.mi.us/plates/).

      You're my hero, Dokas. Never forget that.

      You're still famous, Phil. Well done on the 'nerd' tag.
