A file that big?
It might be very useful.
But now it is gone.

You seek a Web site.
It cannot be located.
Countless more exist.

Chaos reigns within.
Stop, reflect, and reboot.
Order shall return.

ABORTED effort:
Close all that you have worked on.
You ask way too much.

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

First snow, then silence.
This thousand dollar screen dies
So beautifully.

With searching comes loss.
The presence of absence.
"June Sales.doc" not found.

The Tao that is seen
Is not the true Tao
Until you bring fresh toner.

Windows XP crashed.
The Blue Screen of Death.
No one hears your screams.

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.
Page not found.

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

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

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

those are the best people - the super computer nerds with an appreciation for poetry, who also have the time (and boredom) to put something like that together.

I defer to those people :cool:

Justice For All

© by TaggertLOA
He was thirty two,
His wife was twenty eight.
She wondered what was keeping him,
He was running very late.

Then the knock upon the door,
The cop with hat in hand.
He was speaking words to her,
She could not understand.

"I have bad news for you, my dear."
His words tore at her heart.
"Your husband was shot and killed tonight,
While pushing a grocery cart."

He had stopped to get ice cream,
For their son of three.
While there, he did more shopping,
For his precious family.

The gunman came and robbed the store,
He took the lives of three.
Her husband was among the dead,
These parting words, said he:

"Tell my wife I love her,
And my darling baby too.
Tell them I'll be watching over them,
In everything they do."

The years went by,
And life was tough.
She did the very best she could,
But things were always rough.

Finally, the date was set,
The killer was going to die.
All of us who knew them,
Could not help but wonder why.

This evil man who had wrecked their life,
Had been treated like a king.
While being cared for by the state,
You could even hear him sing.

But mom and son had carried on,
No song was in their heart.
The sadness written in their eyes,
While looking for a new start.

Now the time had come,
Tonight he was going to die.
They asked him for his menu,
What he ordered would make a statue cry.

"I'll have lobster, steak, and salad,
A piece of apple pie.
A dish of chocolate ice cream,
To cool me when I fry."

There was no lobster, steak, and salad,
For the family now of two.
Beans and fried potatoes,
Was the best that they could do.

Where is the justice in this world,
For something like this to be?
I wish that we could wake up,
Oh, why can't people see?

Why do criminals have more rights,
Than people like you and me?
We work and pay our taxes,
While they live on us for free.

if you truly want to - you can....

Google up the AlphaV tweaking tool or delve deeply into your registry plus hack your explorer shell and there you go - it's all possible... Just you may have trouble afterwards if you seeks M$ tech support! :p

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!
