here's an idea, since i'm seeing the site getting rick-rolled a lot lately, is for pixoto to upload a promotional video to youtube (like jason/justin/scott singing never gonna give you up), and when there's server errors, to re-direct to that video, instead of rick astley's video. that way, users can get pixoto-rolled instead of rick-rolled. add ads to the video, and you'll make a little money back on the side.

Hey Anton!

I don't think you want to hear me sing. I can't speak for Jason and Scott, but I like the idea for its creativity. I agree that we need to come up with a better 404 page.

That said, do you have any info on what you're doing when you see this page? I have been noticing it more often as well and it would be good if we could just solve the underlying problem.

Thanks!

Justin, like Tanya, i'm getting rick-rolled when uploading photos, and checking the leaderboards. i'm also seeing UTC.sun.misc.Unsafe.park errors pop up every once in a while,
