Error Messages In Japan (not sure if it's true, but it is amusing)

In Japan, they have replaced the impersonal and unhelpful Microsoft Error messages with Haiku poetry messages. Haiku poetry has strict construction rules. Each poem has only three lines, 17 syllables: five syllables in the first line, seven in the second, five in the third. Haikus are used to communicate a timeless message, often achieving a wistful, yearning, and powerful insight through extreme brevity.

-------------------------------------------
Your file was so big.
It might be very useful.
But now it is gone.
-------------------------------------------
The Web site 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.
----------------------------------------------
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.
------------------------------------------------
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.
---------------------------------------------------
Serious error.
All shortcuts have disappeared.
Screen. Mind. Both are blank.
