Sometimes when you are testing, you need to test various HTTP scenarios. Usually, this is to ensure that the server has the proper response or your testing custom responses.
The best solution would be a simple HTTP Request & Response Service.
The one that gives you more bang for your testing would be httpbin.org.
Testing an HTTP Library can become difficult sometimes. RequestBin is fantastic for testing POST requests, but doesn't let you control the response. This exists to cover all kinds of HTTP scenarios. Additional endpoints are being considered.

Safety Sign Generator is a cool site to create simple warning signs. These are signs that you may see around the office such as "Not an Exit" or "High Voltage."
You can have a lot of fun coming up with some fancy signs for Slack or to hang up at your office.
The information required on a safety sign should be arranged to provide the most important information first. The statement concerning the consequences of interaction with the hazard is generally best understood when placed after the hazard description statement or used integrally with the hazard description statement. As a general rule, the hazard message should come first when there are many feasible action/avoidance alternatives. However, action/avoidance messages should come first when there are few avoidance alternatives.
Write in a "headline style," eliminating nonessential words and pronouns (this, that, they), articles (a, the, an), and forms of the verb to be (is, are, were). Avoid hyphenation when at all possible.
