Imagine if instead of cryptic, geeky text strings, your computer produced error messages in haiku...



-------------------------------------

Yesterday it worked
Today it is not working
Windows is like that
---------------------------------------

Serious error.
All shortcuts have disappeared.
Screen. Mind. Both are blank.
------------------------------------------


Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
--------------------------------------


ABORTED effort:
Close all that you have.
You ask way too much.
------------------------------------

Three things are certain:
Death, taxes, and lost data.
Guess which has occurred.


---------------------------------------
With searching comes loss
and the presence of absence:
"My Novel" not found.
----------------------------------------


The Tao that is seen
Is not the true Tao, until
You bring fresh toner.
-------------------------------------------


Windows NT crashed.
I am the Blue Screen of Death.
No one hears your screams.


------------------------------------------





Stay the patient course
Of little worth is your ire
The network is down
-------------------------------------


A crash reduces
your expensive computer
to a simple stone.


---------------------------------------
A file that big?
It might be very useful.
But now it is gone.



---------------------------------------------------
First snow, then silence.
This thousand dollar screen dies
so beautifully.
------------------------------------------

You step in the stream,
but the water has moved on.
This page is not here.
---------------------------------------


Out of memory.
We wish to hold the whole sky,
But we never will.


----------------------------------------------
Having been erased,
The document you're seeking
Must now be retyped.


------------------------------------------------
Rather than a beep
Or a rude error message,
These words: "File not found."
------------------------------------------------


The Web site you seek
cannot be located ,

But endless others exist
-----------------------------------------
