Check out this neat error message I got from gmail today! Of course nothing had actually gone wrong on the page, as far as I could tell, and a click on “refresh” made the error go away, but still, interesting. Also interesting was the fact that the humor totally took the sting out of getting an error message. Though I probably wouldn’t have been so Zen about it if I had actually lost something. But isn’t a pirate snarl so much nicer than an icon of a stop sign or a bomb?
