It's a lovely cool day here in Texas.

Try restarting the HP Sender... PN's SMTP port appears to be working fine from my point of view.

Restart Domino
Try again to send your page
That machine is sad

Miraculous news
Ailing machine is now healed
Before the first snow.

There is a problem
Between your desk and your chair
That needs to be fixed

Gola, the poet,
writes Haikus that make the BOB
giddy with bacon.

Tangentially related - If Dr. Seuss wrote technical manuals.

This was written in 1995 by Gene Ziegler.

Here's an easy game to play.
Here's an easy thing to say:

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
And the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
And the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
Then the socket packet pocket has an error to report!

If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash,
And the double-clicking icon puts your window in the trash,
And your data is corrupted 'cause the index doesn't hash,
Then your situation's hopeless, and your system's gonna crash!

You can't say this?
What a shame sir!
We'll find you
Another game sir.

If the label on the cable on the table at your house,
Says the network is connected to the button on your mouse,
But your packets want to tunnel on another protocol,
That's repeatedly rejected by the printer down the hall,

And your screen is all distorted by the side effects of gauss
So your icons in the window are as wavy as a souse,
Then you may as well reboot and go out with a bang,
'Cause as sure as I'm a poet, the sucker's gonna hang!

When the copy of your floppy's getting sloppy on the disk,
And the microcode instructions cause unnecessary risc,
Then you have to flash your memory and you'll want to RAM your ROM.
Quickly turn off the computer and be sure to tell your mom!

Enter the search term
Then depress the search button
Then read the results

you step in the stream,
but the water has moved on.
this page is not here.

Also, 404 Error Messages in the NetPositive Web Browser for BeOS were all Haikus.

I can't claim the credit for this one - it was in an e-mail that was circulating some years ago.

Your system has crashed
I am the blue screen of death
No one hears you scream

(true stories from when I was in tech support)

I cannot connect
It must be plugged into wall?
This should be made clear.

My modem won't work.
I can't load any web page.
Must my Dell be on?

Computers die mainly at houses of schmucks,
While waffles live long on the heads of ducks.
