VeriSign Claims to Stop 404 Errors

[ #15241 ]

VeriSign to resume SiteFinder "service." http://verisign.com/corporate/news/2003/pr_20031007b.html?sl=070804

"As a heavy but non-technical computer user it has been extremely frustrating for me to encounter 404 errors. Naturally, they happen at the busiest times," said Roy S. Lahet, vice president of Planning for Mercy Behavioral Health. "Alternative suggestions instead of a project-stopping 404 is a welcome and functional improvement to my use of the Web and related searches. It is difficult for me to see a downside to this user friendly enhancement."

Say what? There are a few scenarios here.

  1. VeriSign didn't proof this well, if at all.
  2. They don't have a clue what SiteFinder does.
  3. They're going to solve the 404 problem when SiteFinder is unleashed again.
  4. They've surprised us all time and time again with their stupidity, so we'll use the *.idiot wildcard here.

Whatever, I'm not waiting around to find out. I'm fixing my DNS now so it can't be broken later.
