    Admins, thanks for the laugh on the site down video.

    Is there a direct link for viewing when the site is working properly?

    Error 520 Robot

    Anyone know where the error 520 .gif is? The page background is a hilarious robot falling over.

    Wicked Cool CloudFlare error page

    Getting CDN errors is never fun, but this little number from CloudFlare for TMC makes me smile.

    What's even cooler is that the robot (failing the DARPA challenge) in the background is an embedded animated gif:

    Nicely done, Doug, nicely done.

    aha! I always get a laugh when TMC is down and that pops up, but I've been wondering the same thing for months. I think I figured it out...

    I was watching the recent episode of Nova on PBS - Rise of the Robots, and in the intro was a clip of the same robot falling over, along with several others. Seems like the TMC site down animated GIf was taken from one of the failed finalists of a DARPA robot challenge.
