Error 404--Not Found

From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1:

10.4.5 404 Not Found

The server has not found anything matching the Request-URI. No indication is given of whether the condition is temporary or permanent.

If the server does not wish to make this information available to the client, the status code 403 (Forbidden) can be used instead. The 410 (Gone) status code SHOULD be used if the server knows, through some internally configurable mechanism, that an old resource is permanently unavailable and has no forwarding address.

Savvis CEO stripped of title, 12/13/05

Funny how companies tend to coincidentally slip their unflattering news onto the press wires on Fridays after the markets close or on days surrounding holidays hoping no one will notice. Take service provider Savvis, for example. It almost got us. But in checking back on the status of CEO Robert McCormick, who was put on unpaid leave in late October,

we found that Savvis revealed the day before Thanksgiving that the company had accepted McCormick's resignation.

McCormick got into hot water after American Express filed suit claiming it is owed money stemming from a $241,000 bill McCormick allegedly rung up at the New York topless club Scores about two years ago. Savvis also said it has completed its investigation into the matter and reconfirmed that McCormick "did not submit the charges in question to Savvis for reimbursement and that Savvis has not made any payment to American Express related to the charges."

Jack Finlayson will continue as acting CEO, the company says.

Following the initial word of the McCormick scandal we attempted to get Savvis customers to speak on the record about whether the CEO's alleged behavior would have any impact on their relationship with Savvis, but had a hard time finding any takers (If you are a Savvis customer and do have thoughts on this, feel free to let us know...).

Meanwhile, McCormick made his swan song as Savvis CEO in the pages of Network World recently commenting on soaring Web hosting costs in some areas.
