Find below error messages allegedly from the Japanese version of Windows in the style of Haiku poetry. Haiku poetry, has strict construction rules - each poem has three lines consisting of only 17 syllables; 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second line and 5 in the third line. I have used dashes to indicate lines to save you having to scroll down screen after screen.Denis. The Ancient Brit.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.Yesterday it worked---Today it is not working---Windows is like that.Your file was so big---It might be very useful---But now it is goneStay 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 occurredYou step in the stream---But the water has moved on---The 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.

More!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.Rather than a beep---Or a rude error message---These words: file not found.Windows 95---Devourer of resources---Do we ever learn.Iain Spowart,Scotland.Webmaster and photographer,Scottish Claymores 2002Cheerleaders Fan Sitehttp://avsim.iainspowart.com/2002-s.jpghttp://www.claymorescheerleaders.comhttp://www.iainspowart.com
