Are these whimsical Google error messages new, or am I just out of the loop?
Actually, I get it quite often on youtube… it's at least a couple of weeks old
It's real. https://plus.google.com/113917586131016209076/pos…
And yes, new. ;p
Not new, been around for a few months now.
Came out in March: http://techcrunch.com/2011/03/02/googles-new-404-…
I used to get an error message on Gmail, years ago, about alarm bells ringing at the Googleplex…I thought that was pretty funny.
those error messages are not new.. I (ab)use the Google Image Charts API on a project of mine and whenever where is an error with the URL (the actual call to the api) it shows a similar error message.
This has been arround for a few months now
Yeah, I have come accross this error message as well. Usually when I have over used the API. Of course I always report the error 😉
