Today it is not working
Windows is like that

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

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

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

Server's poor response
Not quick enough for browser.
Timed out, plum blossom.
Rik Jespersen
A crash reduces
your expensive computer
to a simple stone.

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

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

Errors have occurred.
We won't tell you where or why.

insufficient -- what's-it-called?
The term eludes me ...

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

Printer not ready.
Could be a fatal error.
Have a pen handy?
Pat Davis
Stay the patient course
Of little worth is your ire
The network is down
David Ansel
The code was willing,
It considered your request,
But the chips were weak.

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

The Web site you seek
cannot be located but
countless more exist

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

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

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

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

scatt'ring petals to the wind:

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

but the water has moved on.
