New "404 Page Not Found" Page

I'm not sure whether putting dynamic and graphical contents into HTTP response pages is a good practice or not, but here's my new 404 status page.

Screenshot of a bouncy ASCIIfied ball.

This is a JS animation code of a bouncy ASCIIfied ball based on the ASCII effect example from Three.js.

My version uses <canvas> for visualization whereas HTML texts were inserted for graphics in the original version. I decided to use <canvas> instead of actual texts because with various functions like fillText(text, topLeftXtopLeftY[, maxWidth]) placing of a character into a certain rectangular region is much easier. Also in the previous version, changing width of a character is not possible; we can change letter spacing for a better positioning, but it's not a definite solution.

You can find my code here:
