Retrieve Custom 404 page.

I'm using urllib2 to pull pages for a custom version of a web proxy
and am having issues with 404 errors. Urllib2 does a great job of
letting me know that a 404 happened with the following code.

import urllib2
url = 'http://cnn.com/asfsdafsadfasdf/'
page = urllib2.urlopen ( url )
except urllib2.URLErro r, e:
print e

returns: HTTP Error 404: Not Found
However, upon finding the error I would like to load the domain's
custom 404 message instead of returning my own. I've checked the
error information and searched for some sort of web standard but
cannot find anything.

Does anyone know if it is possible to retrieve a url or the page
information for the custom 404 page like this?

I'm trying to pass a custom object back and forth between forms. This custom object is pulled into the app using an external reference to an assembly DLL that was given to me by a co-worker. A query-string flag is used to indicate to the page whether it should instantiate a new instance of the object or access an existing instance from the calling page. On the both pages I have a property of the page which is an instance of this custom...

Hi There! I'm writing a custom HttpHandler to create watermarks on my PNG images of my website. So typically, a PNG image is linked in an ASPX page as follows... <img src="images/test.png" alt="testing" /> So I created an HttpHanlder to handle PNG images, have mapped the PNG extension in the IIS and also added the HttpModule section in the web.config file.

The problem is (using MS Access 2003) I am unable to retrieve long strings (255 chars) from calculated fields through a recordset. The data takes the trip in three phases: 1. A custom public function returns a long string. This works. 2. A query has a calculated field based on the custom function above. This works when the query is run directly.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
