This is great.

I don't know if this is for real or not--but it's pretty funny.

In Japan, they've replaced the impersonal and unhelpful computer error messages with Haiku poetry messages. They're used to communicate a timeless message, often achieving a wistful, yearning and powerful insight through extreme brevity. Here are 13 actual error messages from Japan:

Haiku Error Messages:

1. The Web site you seek / Cannot be located, but / Countless more exist.

2. Chaos reigns within. / Reflect, repent, and reboot. / Order shall return.

3. Program aborting: / Close all that you have worked on. / You ask far too much.

4. Windows has crashed. / I am the Blue Screen of Death. / No one hears your screams.

5. Yesterday it worked. / Today it is not working. / Windows is like that.

6. Your file was so big. / It might be very useful. / But now it is gone.

7. Stay the patient course. / Of little worth is your ire. / The network is down.

8. A crash reduces / Your expensive computer / To a simple stone.

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

10. You step in the stream, / But the water has moved on. / This page is not here.

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

12. Having been erased, / The document you're seeking / Must now be retyped.

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

In other news, I had the best interview I've ever had. He's great! Job's in Auburn, only be like, 28k, 30k if I'm lucky, sorta thing. Benefits though. More money than I make now, and it'd be in my freakin' field! Keeping my fingers crossed. Needs must I apply to the google.

Also, google will be releasing webmail or so the gossip goes.

I'm -all- into that. Seriously.

Uh. I'm at loose ends. I have no idea what to do with myself now. YAY!
