I don’t see them as often on the web as I did a few years ago, but I still occasionally am greeted by a 404 error, file not found. I associate the 404 error with 404 BC as a memory aid. In 404 BC, Sparta defeated Athens and 5 years later in 399 BC, Socrates drank a cup of hemlock. As a student of history, I like to use memory tricks like the above to help remember important dates.
