Error Message Haiku

...from the net.

   Seeing my great fault
   Through darkening blue windows
   I begin again

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

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

   wind catches lily
   scatt'ring petals to the wind:
   segmentation fault

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

   Everything is gone;
   Your life's work has been destroyed.
   Squeeze trigger (yes/no)?

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

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

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

   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.

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

   Stay the patient course
   Of little worth is your ire
   The network is down

   A crash reduces
   your expensive computer
   to a simple stone.

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

   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.

   To have no errors
   Would be life without meaning
   No struggle, no joy., Mon Mar 16 13:37:51 EST 1998
