It's strange. I use the web an awful lot (the company is called Holden Web, after all) and so I am used to seeing server error messages appear in my browser. So I had to stop and wonder just why I found this one so fascinating:

The answer finally came to me after a minute's puzzling: it's the very first Google server error I have ever seen. Given the amount I use Google and the scale of the service they now provide I think that says a huge amount about the quality of their engineering.
