My favorite programming haiku, various sources, various authors

It's going to work!
Not again, my code has bugs.
I don't unit test.
I have a problem.
Maybe regex can help me?
Oh dear, two problems.
Why doesn't this work?
I've checked syntax ninety times!
Oh, missed bracket.
what is with this code?
oh my, looks like I wrote it
what was I thinking?
coding is the best
don’t let it make you feel dumb
keep calm, debug on
Little semicolon
that makes me not compile this,
where are you missing?
Concurrency breaks...
Why does my program not work?
Ah, ******* deadlock!
Oh Mr. Segfault
Error checking does not find
Printfs everywhere
The Web site you seek
Cannot be located, but
Countless more exist.
Yesterday it worked.
Today it is not working.
Windows is like that.
Out of memory.
We wish to hold the whole sky,
But we never will.
Having been erased,
The document you're seeking
Must now be retyped.
Connecting to 'net
Does not work, to my sorrow.
No wiki today.
A syntax error
Strangles my code, much weeping.
Refer to helpfile.
Code, "RUN", midnight sun
burns eternally over
cycling endless loop
Seeing my great fault
Through darkening blue windows
I begin again
To have no errors
Would be life without meaning
No struggle, no joy
