404 or 502 ???
Okay humour an old woman here please.  What is the difference in a 404 error and a 502 error?  At 66 yr young I am confused by some of this stuff LOL.

404 = Page not found, you put a wrong address in or the server got confused for some reason.

502 = routing information got messed up between your browser and the server, lots of possibilities there.

4xx - you did something wrong (wrong URL, etc)
5xx - something is wrong on our side (server problems, misconfiguration, etc.)

ok?..not to debunk this?..but if you look over the  few threads we have in the  community, that ask  about 404/

 The   Admins   say its the site  as  well as  the 502... they generally get on top it , rather  quickly, and it  goes away for a while.

 Ladysharlyne?.. read  though some of the old thread  and see what  folks  like Bigbad and Jase  say?

A 404 means the server doesn't know the thing you're asking for.

Usually, it happens when you mistype the page you want to go to, but it can also happen if the site (or part of it) has crashed and the site doesn't know what you're looking for.

Most of the 404 errors happening here are of the latter type, that's all.

I won't arue..because i only know a bit ...when it  first happened i used to shut  my machine down hot. clean out everything and  come back..and it still wouldn't work.

 of the few threads  for  404  , i started one ot ask  what i could do ( since i use  links  from my favs to get to sites )

 I was  told. the link got me there, but   when i moved to a game  and got 404 , it was because of the problem.

 again?.. they told me that.. it always works  out?  so i have to figure they  are on top of it.

 I imagine  if i  i were goign to a new site..it might  do that?.. I dunno... i wish i was better at this, but everythign  i learned  was through trial and error.

Oh dear why didn't I think of that!

Thank you all as it was not because of the 502s I got yesterday but an honest question in general and I sincerely thank ALL of you for giving me input on my question.  So basically it is not my computer or that I use a few things to log in on.  Thank you for 'humoring an old lady' :)

Its all good Donsr and you were right.  I took the easy way out and shouldn't have as you pointed out.  I have been here yearrrrs also myself and it is my hobby and will always be.  Its a great site with a lot of great people.  As this forum says 'Community' and I like that.  Not always perfect but neither are any of us.  I help out however I can.
