Contribute to the new B3ta 404 page - last year we asked you to make some new 404 images for our page and you DID. OK, we were a bit late sticking them up but we've done it now so here's the all new 404 page! - and if you'd like to add your own image then we've reopened the challenge - please do and we'll bung the best ones in. UPDATE: Stuck the 404 page on github so if you want to fuck with it and make a diff version you can - and if we like it we'll stick it up.

Reverse Films
We're reversing the plots of films this week. e.g. Tron - a sprite gets zapped in to the real world and is made to sweep floors and do taxes instead of throwing a frisbee about.
