    Sent to me as an email... forgive me to all those who will respond this is old! It's new to me! :p

    Here are some actual error messages seen on the computer screens in Japan, here some are written in Haiku. Aren't these better than "your computer has performed an illegal operation"?
    --------------------------------------------
    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.
    --------------------------------------------
    Yesterday it worked. Today it is not working. Windows is like that.
    --------------------------------------------
    Your file was so big. It might be very useful. But now it is gone.
    --------------------------------------------
    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.
