Meta Question

And while I'm asking meta-ish questions... Who's the cat in the Fluther page not found page?

Asked by JeanPaulSartre (5779points) February 23rd, 2010

So you go to a place on Fluther that’s not there – like when you follow an old link, and you get a good shot of someone who looks like they just finished coding all of Fluther overnight. (eg Old question) Who is this king of the 404 page?

That’s Ben, isn’t it?

It’s Ben, I believe. Although I did go to the page and look for a cat…

I thought you meant cat, as in meow.

Ben is on the 404 page.

Basil is Andrew’s cat that is on the maintenance page. (I think)

So it is a kitty cat.

@johnpowell There actually is a cat somewhere? Haha – I was using it in the 1930’s jazz man sense… because I’m the oldest 29 year old ever.

@JeanPaulSartre Hahaha. When the site goes down for maintenance, there is a picture of a cat on a laptop.. a real cat. That’s Basil.

@rangerr I had no idea. I think that kicks the crap out of the Twitter Fail Whale.

Actually… looking at another picture of Basil… I don’t think that’s the same cat.
