Haikus for nerds

The following are haiku based on Wintel error-messages.
(Haiku: a Japanese verse form, rendered in English as three unrhymed
lines of 5, 7 and 5 syllables respectively, often on some subject in
nature)
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
Seeing my great fault
Through darkening blue windows
I begin again
– – – – – – – – – – – –
The code was willing,
It considered your request,
But the chips were weak.
– – – – – – – – – – – –
A file that big?
It might be very useful.
But now it is gone.
– – – – – – – – – – – –
Errors have occurred.
We won’t tell you where or why.
Lazy programmers.
– – – – – – – – – – – –
Three things are certain:
Death, taxes, and lost data.
Guess which has occurred.
– – – – – – – – – – – –
Everything is gone;
Your life’s work has been destroyed.
Squeeze trigger (yes/no)?
– – – – – – – – – – – –
Windows NT crashed.
I am the Blue Screen of Death.
No one hears your screams.
– – – – – – – – – – – –
This site has been moved.
We’d tell you where, but then we’d
have to delete you.
– – – – – – – – – – – –
First snow, then silence.
This thousand dollar screen dies
so beautifully.
– – – – – – – – – – – –
With searching comes loss
and the presence of absence:
« My Novel » not found.
– – – – – – – – – – – –
Yesterday it worked
Today it is not working
Windows is like that
– – – – – – – – – – – –
You step in the stream,
but the water has moved on.
