Windows Haiku

Here are 14 actual error messages seen on the computer screens in Japan, where some are written in Haiku. Aren't these better than: "Your computer has performed an illegal operation"?

1. The Web site you seek cannot be located, but countless more exist.
2. Chaos reigns within. Reflect, repent, and reboot. Order shall return.
3. Program aborting: Close all that you have worked on. You ask far too much.
4. Windows NT crashed. I am the Blue Screen of Death. No one hears your screams.
5. Yesterday it worked. Today it is not working. Windows is like that.
6. Your file was so big. It might be very useful. But now it is gone.
7. Stay the patient course. Of little worth is your ire. The network is down.
8. A crash reduces your expensive computer to a simple stone.
9. Three things are certain: Death, taxes and lost data. Guess which has occurred?
10. You step in the stream, but the water has moved on. This page is not here.
11. Out of memory. We wish to hold the whole sky, but we never will.
12. Having been erased, the document you're seeking must now be retyped.
13. Serious error. All shortcuts have disappeared.
14. Screen. Mind. Both are blank.


I've seen these before... I'm fairly certain that they're not actual error messages (but I could be wrong).

LOL ... these are good.

LOL ... these are good.

FYI: I think 13 and 14 are supposed to be one.

It's funny how this kind of stuff crops up on the internet. Seems like the best jokes return at intervals like waves. I could swear I saw this one when I was the Army before I went to Korea. That would have been 1994 or so. We were still playing bulletin board games over dial up back then.
