Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

Dougal 4.0

Today I turn the big Four-Oh. I’m not sure how I should feel about that. Since I’m a web development geek, how about we consider some possible responses in terms of HTTP 1.1 Status Codes:

I suppose the expected response would be 406 Not Acceptable. How could I possibly be forty? Where did the years go? Many people’s reaction is 416 Requested Range Not Satisfiable, also known as a “mid-life crisis”. As Adam from Mythbusters would say, “I reject your reality, and substitute my own!”

I don’t really feel any different, though. I feel 304 Not Modified. Today is just a day like any other. But with more cake. Overall, I’m 200 OK. I’ve just 202 Accepted it. After all, it’s better than the alternative to getting older — 410 Gone!
