Mozilla IRC In Haiku Form


Mozilla IRC channels become a desolate place during the holidays; much like the deserted school hallways during winter break. Since I'm working remotely this week I poked around my usual channels to see what folks were up to and came across some interesting exchanges that struck me as worth recording in haiku form.

In their own ways these give a little taste of the ridiculousness, the challenges, the fun, the poetry that can be made of the everyday exchanges within the annals of Mozilla IRC.

Enjoy.

I hope you enjoyed. Bonus: submit your own Haiku in the comments! 5-7-5 is all you need to know.
PS: There's a special haiku hiding-out in the stub-installer project we're working on scribed by the amazing, "Happiest Man Alive", Matej Novak, who I hope doesn't mind me posting it here:

  2. lol - thanks for the read, John! I'll take that as a compliment and will formally respond in Haiku form.

    John Slater: this could
    possibly be true. But then
    where would that leave you?
