Win! What could be more meaningful on a 404 page, than a chatterbot, e.g. https://duck.co/SomeNonExistingPage

Things you never knew you needed
An oil-based storm-latern w. built-in radio, powered by a Peltier/Seebek element at top (the exhaust).
http://www.pelam.de/product_info.php?products_id=530&language=en
(Hmmm, as rugged as a storm-latern should be, except that it got the tuning dial and a mini-jack at bottom; begging to fail at first encounter with dirt, wet grass, or whatever. I.e. not designed by an engineer)

Shouldn't Matt Cutt's be fighting the spam, instead of being the spam?!?
Look at http://i.imgur.com/0RNdG9k.png
The searh [Enrico Altavilla Dan Russell] produces: twitter.com /mattcutts as 3'rd result, which is utterly irrelvant!

to Tip in real life = to Flattr on WWW
: http://flattr.com/howflattrworks  
 
WWW is so vast, that even far less than pocket change - can make a difference.
WWW is also the place where anyone, having a great idea, can & do make great things - with very little capital.
But ... Creators & Providers does tend to loose interest when implementations of their great ideas only see attention & use, but no tips.
And when Creators & Providers loose interest, then you & I get deprived of the great tools - which we often use, possibly without thought about origins.
 
Throwing a tiny coin out of pocket change, in the real/physical world - is extremely easy.
It sometimes is too in the electronically connected world - just think about your phone: You make a 20 second phone call, and the administrative burden of payment, is virtually zero!
Why(?) Because you have a relation (possible a contract) with a business enity, commonly know as a phone company.
And you have that, because you expect to keep having a need for making phone calls in the future too.
Well - Do you intend to keep browing & using the Internet, as you intend to keep calling & talking using the phone?

Story
Introduction
Since I'm a "Top Contributor" in Google's WebSearch Forum:  You'd better read below Guideline/Protocol for contacting me, before any attempt of contacting me with a Google Search issue. Because, I'm not getting paid to act as anyone's personal support donkey ;-)

Guideline/Protocol for Contacting me:
If contemplating contacting me w. a Google Search issue, then please observe following regulatory conditions:
  • If I have explicitly requested you to send me a message via my profile page, then please do include a reference (URL) to the thread where I requested you to send me a message.

  • If I have not explicitly requested you to send me a message via my profile page, then it's probably a bad idea doing so. Because 99.9% of all unsolicited messages send via my profile will simply be deleted.
