Computer Haiku

Recommended Posts

(For those of you who may not know what a haiku is, please see here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haiku )

Rather than beep

Or a rude error message:

These words: "File Not Found".

Errors have occurred.

We won't tell you where or why -

Lazy programmers!

Chaos reigns within.

Reflect, repent, and reboot

Order will return.

For a new PC,

Center of my universe,

I abandon all.

The code was willing!

It considered your request,

But the chips were weak.

Everything is gone.

Your life's work has been destroyed.

Squeeze trigger? (yes/no)

A file that big?

It might be very useful.

But now it is gone.

No keyboard present

Hit F1 to continue

Zen engineering?

Website has been moved

We'd tell you where, but then we'd

Have to delete you.

The web site you seek

Cannot be located but

Countless more exist.

Aborted effort:

Close all that you have worked on.

You ask way too much.

Windows XP 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.

Printer not ready.

Could be a fatal error.

Have a pen handy?

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.

Seeing my great fault

Through darkening blue windows

I begin again.

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.

10,000 Things

How long do any persist?

Explorer is gone.

Server: poor response

Not quick enough for browser

Time out, plum blossom.

Having been erased,

The document you're seeking

Must now be retyped.

Serious error.

All shortcuts have disappeared.

Screen. Mind. Both are blank.
