Default Computer Error Messages in Japan...


Haiku poetry computer messages:

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, 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 16 actual error messages from Japan.

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.
---------------------------------------------------
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.
--------------------------------------------------
And the best one for last:

Yesterday it worked.
Today it is not working.
Windows is like that.
--------------------------------------------------
Isn't that better than "this program has performed an illegal
operation?"

LOL, I have always gotten a kick out of that list, thanks.

My favorite is by far...

I'm going to have to go with that one as my favorite...I think it also succeeds as the best Haiku of the bunch.
