I want to share with you some haikus that I've found in the net and that made me really laugh:

Microsoft Windows Errors - in Haiku

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

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

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.

---------------------------------------------------
Login incorrect.
Only perfect spellers may
enter this system.
---------------------------------------------------
This site has moved.
We'd tell you where, but then we'd
have to delete you.
---------------------------------------------------

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.

---------------------------------------------------
There is a chasm
of carbon and silicon
the software cannot bridge.
---------------------------------------------------

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

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

With searching comes loss
And the presence of absence:
"My Novel" not found.

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

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.

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

First snow, then silence.
This thousand dollar screen dies
So beautifully.

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

Serious error.
All shortcuts have disappeared.
Screen. Mind. Both are blank.
