Haiku Error Messages
7/8/2006 6:08:42 AM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

I received this as e-mail and thought
I would share it with you.

Some very talented people, with no life of 
their own, have replaced the impersonal
and unhelpful Microsoft error messages 
with Haiku poetry messages. 
Haiku Poetry has strict construction 
rules: Each poem has only 17 Syllables 
- 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in 
the second, 5 in the third. They are 
used to communicate a timeless message,
Often achieving a wistful, yearning, 
and powerful insight through extreme
brevity. Here are some actual error 
messages.  Aren't these better than 
"your computer has performed an 
illegal operation?"
The Web site you seek
Cannot be located, but
Countless more exist
Chaos reigns within
Reflect, repent, and reboot
Order shall return
Program aborting
Close all that you have worked on
You ask far too much
Windows NT crashed
I am the Blue Screen of Death
No one hears your screams
Yesterday it worked
Today it is not working
Windows is like that
Your file was so big
It might be very useful
But now it is gone
Stay the patient course
Of little worth is your ire
The network is down
A crash reduces
Your expensive computer
To a simple stone
Three things are certain
Death, taxes and lost data
Guess which has occurred
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
Serious error
All shortcuts have disappeared
Screen, Mind, both are blank
I ate your Web page
Forgive me; it was tasty
And tart on my tongue
