View Full Version : MS Haiku

29th May 2001, 13:11
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 file that 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.


Say again, Approach....you want us to do what???

Hey Sep,

You should work for Mircosoft, it would be a big improvement :)

BTW, we must catch up for a drink some time.

I'm not a PPRuNe addict. (just need one more post)

Indeed we must

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:
"Napoleon" not found.
The Tao that is seen
Is not the true Tao until
You bring fresh taoner.

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