In Japan, they have replaced the impersonal and
unhelpful Microsoft
error
messages with Haiku poetry messages.


Your file was so big.
It might be very useful.
But now it is gone.

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

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 crash'd.
I am the Blue Screen of Death.
No-one hears your screams.

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

Yesterday it work'd.
Today it is not working.
Windows is like that.

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

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

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

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.

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

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 am MS 'Doze
Testament of Shoddiness
Now I crash and die!

I'd put that in there to replace any error message Windoze gives me, anyday! LOL

There was no error;
I said so only to see
If you were watching.

(my computer is devious)

These were great -- thanks!

Haha... brilliant idea.

I apoligize
This page cannot be displayed
Check your connection

Mash the keyboard hard
Try to get the message through
Beat it with a stick

Windows has perished
To read this message again
Just hit any key

.....ooh... these are fun.

Hehe... this is a lot of fun. Here's some of my most common experiences... the ones that make me give my computer "baseball bat therapy."

Windows is busy
Wait for the "end task" window
Go make a sandwich...

Sound card is in use?
Speakers are put on full blast
Still I hear nothing.

Compy crash again
after two hours of homework...
should have saved the file.

Computer gone wrong?,
Seek help files if all else fails,
Throw out of window.

Love these


Don't ever give in, if you do you've lost everything you've ever had and everything you hope to gain, but if you carry on your already winning.

The format for Haiku/Senryu is first line 5 syllables, second line 7, third line 5. Just mentioning it to avoid further confusion.

That is quite the shock...
Did you mention that somewhere?
I must have missed it.
