Error Message in German??

Hi all!

Does anyone know why when a page won't load I get an error message in German? Actually I am only guessing it is German.

It's German, but I don't know why you're getting it.

Auf wiedersehen und viel Spass!
(Goodbye and have fun!)

You can use to translate bits and pieces like this but the more important thing is the error number 502. If you google '502 web error' you can get websites explaining the message. A 502 error is the website you are trying to reach is overloaded and try back later.

Hi Gabriella,

Well great that I live in Germany. Here is what it says:

The website is not responding.
The website that you have requested, is currently technically down, due to a busy or a disconnected server. Please try again by clicking the reload button on your toolbar or - wehn that did not work - come back again later and try again.
502 connection error.

Why you got that in German I do not know - maybe it was a German server.

Hope that helped!

I've had this bug happen to me in the past with other sites.

Bloglines would periodically slip into Japanese!

Ha! Japanese. classic.

Web Error pages can be anything at all, and so it's possible that the calendar is being hosted on a German server, or the program itself was written by a German (or Swiss or Austrian), or something like that.

You can have a lot of fun with error pages. If you enter a non-existing page URL on my site (like click here for example) you'll get a picture of me looking like I accidentally passed wind, plus a search box.
