This is due to [[Wikipedia:Hyperlink|relative linking]]. That means, for example, since the 404 page calls on the Flash file "404error.swf", this will have the 404 page looking for "404error.swf" ''in'' that folder, and will not load because the Flash file does not exist in that folder. This is because it is calling on the file using just the file name, in which it is assumed that the file is in the same folder as the page linking to it. This could be fix by having it point to "http://www.homestarrunner.com/404error.swf" instead of "404error.swf".

day, but come on! it's like you're not even trying.

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Remarks

  • There are nine arrows sticking into The Ugly One from behind, but twelve heads are visible coming out of her front.

[edit] Goofs

  • If you got a 404 error while in a different directory from the root directory (e.g. www.homestarrunner.com/stinkogame/), the Flash files for 404'd and the navigation bar would not load. This was due to relative linking. That means, since the 404 page called on the file "404error.swf", the page would look for "404error.swf" in that folder, and since the files don't exist in that folder, it would not load. Since the page is using just the file name, it is assumed that the file is in the same folder as the page linking to it. An easy solution to this is pointing the error's Flash file URL to "http://www.homestarrunner.com/404error.swf", and the navigation bar to "http://www.homestarrunner.com/main_nav.swf" instead of plainly "404error.swf" and "main_nav.swf", respectively.

[edit] Fixed Glitches

  • Sometimes, for unknown reasons, a 404 error wouldn't bring up this page, bringing up the stock IIS 404 error message instead.
  • Accessing 404.shtml, the common file name for a 404 page by most web servers, would give an HTTP error of 403 (File Forbidden) returned by IIS, due the risk of running an executable on the server.

[edit] Inside References

  • The image on the right of the message is a modified version of a shot from both comic and Teen Girl Squad Issue 1, in which The Ugly One is arrowed.

[edit] Fast Forward

  • In the Stinkomanual, the end boss of Level 3 has a quote, "Stlunko need a reason to live.", attributed to "Stlunko, 404".
