Time Event
6:19p
In Japan, they have replaced the impersonal and unhelpful Microsoft error messages with their own Japanese haiku poetry, each only 17 syllables: 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second, 5 in the third.

------------------------

A crash reduces
Your expensive computer
To a simple stone.

------------------------

Your file was so big.
It might be very useful.
But now it is gone.

------------------------

The Web site you seek
Cannot be located, but
Countless more exist.

------------------------

Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

------------------------

ABORTED effort:
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.

------------------------

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.

------------------------

Stay the patient course.
Of little worth is your ire.
The network is down.

------------------------

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.
