    Haikus are used to communicate a timeless message often achieving a wistful,
    yearning and powerful insight through extreme brevity -- the essence of Zen:

    -----------------------------
    Your file was so big.
    It might be very useful.
    But now it is gone.
    -----------------------------
    The Website 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.
    -----------------------------
    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.
    -----------------------------
    Stay the patient course.
    Of little worth is your ire.
    The network is down.
    -----------------------------
    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.
    -----------------------------
    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.
    -----------------------------
    Serious error.
    All shortcuts have disappeared.
    Screen. Mind. Both are blank.

    Having been looked at,
    The haikus you have posted
    Are still quite funny.

    Wiping tear from eye
    Stomach hurting
    Laughed so hard I did.

    I got a PC,
    It is really fast, but I
    miss Mac OS X.
