Code 404! Subsequent code 500 take-down! A geeky viral from Nosh

In mid-July, Firespotter Labs, a Google-backed team of developers and designers, co-founded by Craig Walker, the co-founder of Google Voice, released Nosh, a mobile app for iPhone and Android that allows users to check in, rate, review and share menu items. Nosh is a yummy app, a baked list of recommendations that sits somewhere between Foursquare and Yelp and across from Foodspotting at the dinner table of social food apps.

At launch, Nosh served up 150,000 menus, 475,000 restaurants and 10 million menu items. The app makes it easy for anyone to take a photo of a dish, check-in to a location and start sharing it with friends and family. At launch, it released a cute Vimeo video to promote the app, and now it seems that someone with a sweet HD camera has done it again- this time creating a viral app fully loaded with geek humor.

Periodically, pages go missing, assets get misplaced — you should not be concerned. This is a startup, this kind of thing happens. At Nosh, we are fortunate to have a relationship with several teams of ex-special forces operatives who help us track down these missing pages. When a page on this website goes rogue — and a code 404 arises — we dispatch one of our teams to bring it back. Ideally they are able to salvage the missing page, but sometimes, if the page is truly lost, they have to take it out (resulting in the subsequent code 500 when the page gets taken down).

Regarding the page you are currently looking for, one of our teams actually did find it, but it did not want to be found and a firefight ensued. This encounter is documented above.

We are very sorry we are not able to display the page you were looking for. Please go back home and we’ll do our best to ensure this kind of mix up is resolved peacefully in the future.
