Salon’s error haikus


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

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

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

The Web site you seek
Can not be located but
Countless more exist.
                     Joy Rothke

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

This site has been moved.
We’d tell you where, but then we’d
have to delete you.
                     Charles Matthews

Aborted effort:
Close all that you have worked on.
You ask far too much.
                     Mike Hagler

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

A crash reduces
Your expensive computer
To a simple stone.
                     James Lopez

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

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

You step in the stream,
But the water has moved on.
This page is not here.
                     Cass Whittington

Out of memory.
We wish to hold the whole sky,
But we never will.
                     Francis Heaney

Login incorrect.
Only perfect spellers may
enter this system.
                     Jason Axley

No keyboard present
Hit F1 to continue
Zen engineering?
                     Jim Griffith

Hal, open the file
Hal, open the damn file, Hal
open the, please Hal
                     Jennifer Jo Lane

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

Having been erased,
The document you’re seeking
Must now be retyped.
                     Judy Birmingham

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

Three things are certain:
Death, taxes, and lost data.
Guess which has occurred.
                     David Dixon
