Some Haiku

No keyboard present
Hit F1 to continue
Zen engineering?

The web site you seek
Cannot be located but
Countless more exist.

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

Windows XP 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.

The Tao that is seen
Is not the true Tao, until
You bring fresh toner.

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.

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

This site uses frames
And yet your browser does not.
One of these will change.

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

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

Microsoft Windows
Hackers exploit a new hole
You will need to patch

An old CD-ROM
How should I purge its data?
Oh, the microwave

That key puzzles me
I can find no use for it
Scroll Lock enigma

Ozone fills the room
How much did I overclock?
Processor is fried

I'm trapped in a loop
A bad recursive function
I cannot escape

Have a good weekend!

MI6 Recruitment

by gadgetgirl In reply to Some Haiku

MI6 had an opening for an assassin. After all the usual background checks, interviews and appraisals had been completed, there were just three candidates left; two men and one woman.
For the final test, the Deputy-Director told the candidates that an MI6 agent would take them to a large metal door and hand each one a gun. "We must know that you will follow your instructions, no matter what the circumstances. Inside that room you will find your wife sitting in a chair. "Kill her!!!"
"Y-you c-c-can't be serious," stammered the man. "I could never shoot my own wife!"
"Then you're not the right man for this job," replied the Deputy-Director coldly. "Take your wife and go home."
An agent gave the second man the same instructions. The man took the gun and stepped reluctantly into the room. All was quiet for several minutes. Then he staggered out with tears in his eyes. "I tried," he sobbed, "I really did try, but I can't kill my wife, it's inhuman."
"Tough," snapped the agent. "You obviously don't have what it takes to be an assassin. Get your wife and stop wasting our time."
Finally, it was the woman's turn. Her husband was locked in the room and she was given the same instructions as the men: kill the target. She took the gun and went into the room. Several shots rang out in rapid succession. Then the waiting agents heard terrible screams, followed by loud crashing and banging on the walls. After a few minutes it went deathly quiet. Then the door slowly opened and the woman came out wiping blood from her hands. "This gun was loaded with blanks!" she complained. "I had to beat him to death with the chair!"
"I told you," said the Deputy-Director, turning to the gaping agents, "When you want a tough job doing, hire a woman."
