Digg Kills Another Cool Web Site



Yesterday I went to Digg.com.

I saw one of the links I wanted to check out: "Windows Xp easter eggs!........must see." Cool! I love easter eggs!

I clicked on it -- "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"

Hmm, Digg must have sent more traffic than that site could handle.

Let's check the good 'ol Internet Archive.

And what's that link? http://www.bizzntech.com/?p=125

Ok, "Take Me Back."

"Sorry, no matches."

Ok, it's no problem, I'll just check back tomorrow.

--Next Day--

Do dee doo dee doo...Let's go to Digg...

Hmm, where's that cool story...

It was on Page 1 before, now its...ok...page 5.

It should be ready now. I'll bet the strain has lessened, and -- look, it's even got more diggs! It must be available.

--CLICK--

"404 Page Doesn't Exist!" (Yes, there really was an exclamation point)

Aww God!

Hey, an informative link...

Your 110MB domain is suddenly showing this page?

--CLICK--

This is what it says:
"I get taken to 404 page when I go to my domain. Why?

Solution
Ok. Your site was working fine. And now when you access it you're getting http://www.110mb.com/404.htm (404 page). Here's why...

REASON 1: ***
Your account or site violated our Terms of Service at http://www.110mb.com/agreement.html and was deleted. Registration process, email confirmation and account created homepage all assumed you've read TOS and understood it.

Note: This only applies if the root level of your domain (IE: http://USERNAME.110mb.com/) shows 404. Otherwise you're most likely getting it because of missing page or your script is taking you to 404.

REASON 2: ***
Username you registered just now previously belonged to another server. Hence you must wait 10-15 hours for IP addresses to assign your username to the new server. You also won't be able to FTP during this time.
"

Poor site owner. They lost their site. Or maybe they sold it to the highest bidder...? Whatever the case, Digg strikes again!
