Most Zenlike Web Page Ever

I was reading an old King Kaufman article (go Pirates!) in Salon's archives. When I got down to the bottom of the page, I saw a line that said this:

• Bookmark to get the new Kaufman column every day.

You must click that quoted link.

Note that if the link actually pointed to what it says (do that hovering thing) --

-- it would work (with a proper redirect). Well, "work" in a more mundane sense, I concede. And fresher content from the King is available elsewhere on Salon, and on his personal blog, also too.

Fascinating. That's a HTTP 302 page. I was curious how IE handles the link vs. Chrome (my default browser, currently). All I can say is "pathetically" -- hilariously prompting the use to diagnose connection problems. Too funny.

Firefox handles it the same way

Yikes; hit publish by mistake.

I meant to say that Firefox handles the error (the 302) the same way that Chrome does. As written it implies Firefox behaves like IE.

Also "user," not "use."

Also: an HTTP 302 page, not a.

(Incurably yours.)

P.S. Thanks for testing it out with other browsers. I almost never think to do that.
