Haiku (Japanese Poetry) put to modern use
I love it when old and beautiful things are put to real use. Like old buildings restored to their former glory and being filled with life once more, or an old clock that still tells the time. Or a dusty beige PC that chugs away in the corner, performing its little tasks without complaint.
Now we have the ancient Japanese poem form revived to perform a new duty: Haiku error messages.
You step in the stream, But the water has moved on. This page is not here.
A crash reduces Your expensive computer To a simple stone.
The Web site you seek Cannot be located, but Countless more exist.
Chaos reigns within. Reflect, repent, and reboot. Order shall return.
Your Windows has crashed. I am the Blue Screen of Death. Work begins again.
Yesterday it worked. Today it is not working. Windows is like that.
Your file was so vast. Of much worth was it to you. And now it is gone.
Stay the patient course. Of little worth is your ire. The network is down.
Three things are certain Death, tax and lost data. Guess which has occurred.
Serious error. Like the pure-white winter snow Screen, Drive: Both are blank.
