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.
