    Talking M$ Haiku For You

    Not sure if this has been posted before. Enjoy.


    Microsoft Haiku For You

    In Japan, they 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 from Japan. 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.
