      Haikuish in the spirit of other tech classics:

      Windows NT crashed.
      I am the Blue Screen of Death.
      No one hears your screams.

      – Peter Rothman

      Amazing. I just had a quick email to and fro with Peter Rothman — an old online friend — this afternoon. And here he is…

      Funny story about that haiku, I once threatened Microsoft with a lawsuit for reprinting it with out permission. It was sort of a joke although they had reused my haiku and a number of others without permission, but they didn’t think so ;)

      Hi Peter:

      It was really quite a surprise, emailing you yesterday for the first time in quite a while, and then coming here and finding your haiku (which I’d seen many times) with your name attached (I don’t think I’d known you wrote it) – delightful, in any case!

      Very timely.
