We all do it, the hastily typed URL with clumsy ‘I’ve had one coffee to many’ fingers and before you know it you’re staring at a boring white screen informing you in large blue and black letters that you have made a 404 error: File not found. Dur!
If you’ve got too much time on your hands and are having a particularly tedious Tuesday, this mind-numbingly standard HTTP response code is fully explained on Wikipedia.
Alternatively, if you’re not a geek, check out our error page. Of course you know by now that we don’t do things in a standard manner at The Brand Surgery, it’s too boring! So why not ‘force’ a mistake out of your impossibly clever self and type www.thebrandsurgery.co.uk/bog. You’ll see our ‘404’ page seems to have been hijacked by a couple of loony doctors! Yes, we like to stand out quite a bit and with this page hope to do just that, whilst cheering up the odd clumsy visitor to our snazzy pages. (Not you of course, you just wouldn’t get it wrong)
