    No Rly, what have you guys ever stumbled across on the 'net, and thought 'WTF?' when you saw it?

    I was typing in a URL for a bingo site (laugh and I'll kill you) when I came across this.

    What do you think it's for?

    If you know, why?

    And what equivalents have you seen?


    aaaand...


    ...



    go.

    The source code doesn't give much clues either
    Code:
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>bing.org</title>
    </head>
    <body bgcolor=#000000 text=#80FF80 link=#80FF80 alink=#80FF80 vlink=#80FF80>
    
    <img style="position: absolute; left: 50%; top: 50%; margin-left: -298px; margin-top: -323px" width="597" height="647" src="notredame.jpg">
    
    </body>
    </html>
    
    not much info in google either....

    I have no either whatsoever, i'll let BM :shades do the research

    Probs quite a simple explanation for this one, actually. At my work (in this context, domain registrar and web hosting co) loads of customers upload a simple page to replace our bog standard holding page.

    Some (myself included) tend to do so with a little humour, and upload something to elicit exactly that "wtf" effect should someone happen to come across their little corner of the Net.


    HTH :biggrin

    Thanks :)

    But that's rubbish! Can't you lie? This would have been such a good page to lie about.

    You could have told me it was a clue in the Da Vinci code, or anything! :dry :p

    BM, that's just... odd.

    And I only listened for about fifteen seconds.

    Right. I'm going to bed in ten minutes. If, when I get up in the morning there's not a good indepth debate about the internet on this thread, I'll track you all down and wallop you in the nether regions.

    (And remember, that's not a good thing)
