haiku for windows

All over the World, they have replaced the impersonal and unhelpful 404 Failure 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:

Wiley little File
Eludes you most handsomely
Whack that mouse harder
-------------------------------------------
Pondering the glass
Is it half empty or full?
Well, the file's not here
--------------------------------------------
Which sound is louder
A solitary hand clapping
Or a file not found?
-----------------------------------------------
Server is willing
Alas, the file is crafty
It cannot be found
------------------------------------------------
You step in the stream
but the water has moved on.
This page is not here.
--------------------------------------------------
I ate your Web Page.
Forgive me. It was juicy
And tart on my tongue.
---------------------------------------------------
error four oh four
file not found. likely my fault.
so sorry 'bout that.
---------------------------------------------------
Sorrow covers you.
Honourable Web reports:
Document not found.
--------------------------------------------------
Looking into space
You find the stars have shifted.
Where has the page gone?
-------------------------------------------------
Fish hunts for water
but like you clicking on page
still cannot find it
---------------------------------------------------

You deserve a kinder note
Like this web haiku
---------------------------------------------------
You think we not care
about missing connect? Not!

---------------------------------------------------
Just a dumb machine.
Accuse me, I'm confusing --
Which page did you want?
---------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------
You have lost your way
Have you tried Hare Krishna
Or a new address?

If you must file a complaint
Send it to Bill Gates

It is not money
It is missing web pages
At root of evil

You boldly go where
No web page has gone before
Beam me up, Scotty

Where are the snows of
yesteryear? Vanished, like this
page you hoped to find.

Or has this web page been moved?
Either way: Not here.
--------------------------------------------------
