Microsoft Haiku

In Japan, they have replaced the impersonal and unhelpful Microsoft error messages with haiku poetry, each with only 17 syllables: five in the first line, seven in the second, five in the third. Seeing as it may have been a few weeks since your last Microsoft case, the Harbus thought you might need another Fix.

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

The website you seek
Cannot be located, but
Countless more exist.

Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent and reboot.
Order shall return.

Aborted effort.
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.

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.

I ate your Web page.
Forgive me; it was tasty
And tart on my tongue
