Even the BIG Guys Get It Wrong

I’ve ranted in the past about getting your mass emails right.

Well it seems that even the big guys have problems when it comes to this stuff. I received an email from Gartner today offering a free report. I clicked through and got to the web page that was offering a pdf download of the report. I clicked on the link and…voila! HTTP 500 Internal Server Error!

Four links on that page, four errors. And hours later it’s still not fixed.

So it turns out it’s not just us little guys that have problems with our links.
