Not a bad joke

In Japan, they have replaced the impersonal and unhelpful Microsoft
error messages with Haiku poetry messages. Haiku poetry has strict
construction rules: Each poem has only 17 syllables - 5 syllables in the
first line,
7 in the second, 5 in the third. They are used to communicate a timeless
message, often achieving a wistful, yearning, and powerful insight
through extreme brevity. Here are some actual error messages from Japan.
Aren't these better than "your computer has performed an illegal
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 gone.
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.
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.
Serious error.
All shortcuts have disappeared.
Screen. Mind. Both are blank.
I ate your Web page.
Forgive me; it was tasty
And tart on my tongue

Chevs may go, but theres nothing like a HO!
