A primer on HTML error codes

So this morning around 3:30AM I get told Netflix isn’t working. Now here’s a little primer when web sites don’t work it’s either a user issue or a server issue. These occupy codes 400 and 500 respectively. Now I suspect Netflix was doing some maintenance or someone pushed a change that borked the server. Kept getting a 503 code – and the thing is if it were planned maintenance and email should have gone out, and you could redirect the page to a copy of the maintenance notice.

So I’m going with someone pushed a change that screwed it up. Nice huh?
