A friend E-mailed this to me the other day! I thought
you all might get a small kick out of some of these!


If computer error messages were haikus:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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

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

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

A file that big?
It might be very useful,
but now it is gone.

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

Errors have occurred.
We won't tell you where or why.
Lazy programmers.

The code was willing.
It considered your request,
but the chips were weak.

Printer not ready.
Could be a fatal error.
Have a pen handy?

This site has been moved.
We'd tell you where, but then we'd
have to delete you.

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

The Web site you seek
cannot be located but
endless others exist.

A crash reduces
your expensive computer
to a simple stone.

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

Having been erased,
the document you're seeking
must now be retyped.

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

Irie~

All attempts to SAVE
Have been totally wasted
Now do it AGAIN !

Your drive isn't hard
But your head certainly is
I said ILLEGAL !

*Thank you for sharing those adorables with us !
I liked 'em bunches !

A lighter side of such an annoying thing, thanks for sharing these   my favorite:
