NetPositive: Easter eggs

Contributed by: Nathan Whitehorn
This tip is valid for: Both BeOS and Haiku

Enter a non-existent URL into NetPositive and you’ll receive a goofy or poetic error message, usually in the Japanese Haiku format (5-7-5 syllabic structure). For example:

An ephemeral site.
I am the blue screen of death.
No one hears your screams.

There are dozens of different messages buried here, so keep trying for more. If you’d rather see plain old boring error messages, see the tip Access Hidden Preferences.

There’s another NetPositive easter egg not related to error messages. See if you can find it in the About box, or buy the BeOS Bible for the answer…
