a comfy break

Monday, December 17, 2018

In the studying of links a peculiar feeling comes to mind

links are not that old yet, the internet isn’t that old yet. These portals have only existed for short periods of time. Still portals decay. Rot, rotting. Try and make a difference, it won’t happen.

The internet is not our own but rather a new dimension. As Decartes pleaded that the mind and body are on different planes of existence, the internet exist on a third plane functioning on its own. Or perhaps, the internet exists in the mind plane
settled within our own consciousness

instead of being connected by the Amygdala, it connects through the eyes. Receptors receive, Sensor sense, the mind connects it all and files it away.

As humans we demand connection.

We see faces in images and foggy streets even if there is no person,
this nature prevents us from tolerating link decay

We click, we ask, we want.

In the moment we stumble across a broken link the mind gets stuck,
it wants to jump the portal but falls in a black hole.
Through the chasing of perfection and wholeness in daily life the brain cuts off when it cannot complete the link. The chain ends. This is an unsatisfactory experience.


To change the stigma of broken links and erase their oppression by capitalist society we will introduce a comfortable link,

 a nice place, a home, time to take a break…

A comfy break.

Is it possible to create an ideal ‘404 not found’ page?

Sunday, December 9, 2018

‘404 Error’ pages are basically pages that either doesn’t exist or they are broken. Sometimes being in control of thousands of pages on a site is troublesome and errors can be inevitable. However you can create an excellent 404 page that could in fact help your user.

Even though it can act as an advantage people still tend to avoid altering their 404 pages. But what could be useful to include in a 404 error page?

  1. Have a search engine so that people can search what they are looking for
  2. Have a link to the main page so that people can redirect
  3. Create contact forms so that people can inform you about the broken link/fill in their inquiries


4. It’s always disappointing when you reach an 404 Error page. Therefore it is a good idea to prevent further frustration. 


5. Or you can have a really playful design such as


6. You can also have a funny design. 


In conclusion, 404 error pages can be useful for your users if you care about making it into a helpful page.
