Almost a dot com



  • I often type random domain names for something to do...

    www.almosta.com really is that - at the time of writing it said "500 - Internal Server Error".  Nice.
     



  • It's not that nice

    The Real WTF is that typing random domain names is a pastime. Some people read. Some build models.

    The Real Real WTF is that a 500 error is considered worthy of a posting on this forum, cuz 500 errors NEVER happen. EVAR. 



  • Huh... I put into my browser, and it was working.  I guess they mean "Almost a" bed or couch, because it's a site about futons.

    I actually used to dial random 1-800 numbers when I was stuck somewhere with a payphone.  Surprisingly, not that many were phone sex lines.

    The Real Real Real WTF is that you don't seem to recognize why he posted about the 500 error.  It's not that there wasa 500 error, but that the 500 error was on a domain called "almosta.com".  Which when said out loud is "almost a dot com".  So it's humorous that it's a valid address, but the page isn't working because it's almost a working web page.

    Probably the most bizarre cybersquatting choice ever
