404 Error Pages, any nice ones?

I planned to, never got round to it though, as I tend to sort out 404 errors or have a redirect in place.
Probably worth noting that some CMS systems need a custom 404 error page or missing pages get returned to the home page. Sniffer bots often use this test to see if your website is CMS based or not and then can mark you out as 'hacker food'. Not the case will all CMS systems but worth checking out.

Thanks for the heads up. I think I just have a standard WP 404 page, but I'll look into it to be sure.
