Zen and the Art of Microsoft Maintainance

Space Bar reproduces some Haiku error messages that pop up when you use Microsoft software in Japan. One that I like:
A crash reduces
Your expensive computer
To a simple stone.
Yeah, yeah, it must be apocrypha, but these contain, you must admit, wisdom beyond the world of computing. In the end, after all, it's all just simple stones. No?

Update (October 4): Pete Gray writes in to point out that all these originated in a Salon competition a few years ago.
