The Shetlink forum:

Unparalleled high culture.

There! I've said it now!




I've heard it said

It sometimes rains in Shetland;

Who can believe this?




I'll write you haiku,

or limericks, or sonnets:

Just send me money ...




Now I've got going,

and haiku flow like water ...

Help! Someone stop me!

A passing fancy ...

then everyone disappears:

That's haiku for you.



Main reason for post: nobody's mentioned those beautiful haiku "error messages", allegedly (of course) Japanese in origin. Meditate on these:



Yesterday it worked.

Today it is not working.

Windows is like that.



First snow, then silence.

This thousand-dollar screen dies

So beautifully.



You step in the stream,

But the water has moved on.

This page is not here.



A crash reduces

Your expensive computer

To a simple stone.



Stay the patient course.

Of little worth is your ire.

The network is down.



Serious error.

All shortcuts have disappeared.

Screen. Mind. Both are blank.



Chaos reigns within.

Reflect, repent, and reboot.

Order shall return.



Three things are certain:

Death, taxes, and lost data.

Guess which has occurred.
