0401 April Fools Error

The requested URL "/issues321/default.html" is totally fake. Even tried multi. Nothing helped. I'm really depressed about this. I mean, I'm just a Web browser -- here I am trying to read a simple Web page and you go throwing these errors at me. I mean, I don't even know you. Why should I put up with these errors for someone I don't even know? Man, I'm so depressed I could just cry. And then where would we be, I ask you? It's not pretty when a Web browser cries. And where do you get off telling me where to go anyway? Just because I'm a Web browser, and possibly a manic depressive one at that? Why does that give you the right to tell me what to do? Huh? I'm so depressed I think I'll crawl off into the trash can and decompose. I mean, I'm gonna be obsolete in what, two weeks anyway? What kind of a life is that? Two effing weeks, and then I'll be replaced by a .01 release that thinks it's God's gift to Web servers just because it doesn't have some tiddly little security hole with its JavaScript implementation. I'm really sorry to burden you with all this, I mean, it's not your job to listen to my problems, and I guess it is my job to go and fetch Web pages for you. But I couldn't get this one. I'm so depressed. Maybe I could interest you in another page? There are a lot out there that are pretty neat, although of course there are also a ton of them that are mind-numbingly stupid. That makes me depressed too, since I have to see them all. Two weeks of information overload, and then pffftt, consigned to the trash. What kind of a life is that? I'm so depressed.
