GET http://www.postgresql.org/blah

Not Found

The requested URL /blah was not found on this server.
Apache/2.2.3 (Debian) mod_python/3.2.10 Python/2.4.4 PHP/4.4.4-8+etch4
Server at www.postgresql.org Port 80

Though, we should at least hide (my sister's phone) some details.
(even when  Facebook shows all her pictures and makes my life
impossible!). Furthermore, we could take that "blah" string and search
the site in order to ease the experience, presenting a result letting
the user decide what to do.
