Haiku Error Messages

Experience the profound nothingness of these haiku error messages from

Windows NT crashed.
I am the Blue Screen of Death.
No one hears your screams.

A file that big?
It might be very useful.
But now it is gone.

Server’s poor response
not quick enough for browser.
Timed out, plum blossom.

Yesterday it worked.
Today it is not working.
Windows is like that.

You step in the stream
but the water has moved on.
This page is not here.

Wind catches lily,
scatt’ring petals to the wind:
Segmentation fault.

With searching comes loss
and the presence of absence:
“My Novel” not found.

Login incorrect.
Only perfect spellers
may enter this system.

The Tao that is seen
is not the true Tao,
until you bring fresh toner.

Out of memory.
We wish to hold the whole sky,
but we never will.

To have no errors
would be life without meaning.
No struggle, no joy.

    Those are too funny.
    The server should serve us all
    Not the other way.

    Glad you enjoyed them,
    for laughter is fleeting joy.
    To err is human.
