IMAGINE IF INSTEAD OF CRYPTIC TEXT STRINGS,
YOUR COMPUTER PRODUCED ERROR MESSAGES IN HAIKU…

A file that big?
It might be very useful.
But now it is gone.
– – – – – – – – – – – –
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
– – – – – – – – – – –
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.
– – – – – – – – – – – –
Rather than a beep
Or a rude error message,
These words: “File not found.”
– – – – – – – – – – – –
Serious error.
All shortcuts have disappeared.
Screen. Mind. Both are blank.
– – – – – – – – – – – –
The Web site you seek
cannot be located but
endless others exist
– – – – – – – – – – – –
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
– – – – – – – – – – – –
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.
– – – – – – – – – – – –
Windows NT crashed.
I am the Blue Screen of Death.
No one hears your screams.
– – – – – – – – – – – –
A crash reduces
your expensive computer
to a simple stone.
– – – – – – – – – – – –
Error messages
cannot completely convey.
We now know shared loss.
– – – – – – – – – – – –
Three things are certain:
Death, taxes, and lost data.
Guess which has occurred.
– – – – – – – – – – – –
