    These started turning up in about 1997 or so. Here's one of the earlier sets.

    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.
    - - - - - - - - - - - -

    Seeing my great fault
    Through darkening blue windows
    I begin again
    - - - - - - - - - - - -

    The code was willing,
    It considered your request,
    But the chips were weak.
    - - - - - - - - - - - -

    Printer not ready.
    Could be a fatal error.
    Have a pen handy?
    - - - - - - - - - - - -

    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.
    - - - - - - - - - - - -

    Server's poor response
    Not quick enough for browser.
    Timed out, plum blossom.
    - - - - - - - - - - - -

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

    Login incorrect.
    Only perfect spellers may
    enter this system.
    - - - - - - - - - - - -

    This site has been moved.
    We'd tell you where, but then we'd
    have to delete you.
    - - - - - - - - - - - -

    Wind catches lily
    scattering fragrant petals:
    segmentation fault
    - - - - - - - - - - - -

    ABORTED effort:
    Close all that you have.
    You ask way too much.
    - - - - - - - - - - - -

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

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

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

    The Web site you seek
    cannot be located but
    endless others exist
    - - - - - - - - - - - -

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

    A crash reduces
    your expensive computer
    to a simple stone.
    - - - - - - - - - - - -

    There is a chasm
    of carbon and silicon
    the software can't bridge
    - - - - - - - - - - - -

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

    - - - - - - - - - - - ->
    No keyboard present
    Hit F1 to continue
    Zen engineering?
    - - - - - - - - - - - -

    Hal, open the file
    Hal, open the damn file, Hal
    open the file, please Hal
    - - - - - - - - - - - -

    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.
    - - - - - - - - - - - -

    The ten thousand things
    How long do any persist?
    Netscape, too, has gone.
    - - - - - - - - - - - -

    Rather than a beep
    Or a rude error message,
    These words: "File not found."
    - - - - - - - - - - - -

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

    To have no errors
    Would be life without meaning
    No struggle, no joy
    - - - - - - - - - - - -

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

    The first line must have 5 syllables, not 4.
