Strange eBay Offer

January 28th, 2008

The Internet

I’ve seen a lot of odd error messages from popular websites when something times out, goes offline, crashes, etc. but this is the first time I’ve seen an e-mail error message from one of the biggest sites of them all: It would appear SquareTrade wants to offer one of those amazing 5-year warranties and to show me how solid their service is, they’ve provided for me this lovely script error inside my e-mail.

What’s even more interesting is their choice of server names. If you notice at the bottom you’ll see the standard Apache error message followed by… what the…. ZEBULON? Do they mean the trendy Zebulon Cafe in San Francisco or should I prepare to be assimilated?
