at last...machines with emotions...

I had sent a mail to a friend of mine who I thought works with Sify and so I sent the mail on her sify email id. However I received a Mailer-Daemon which read thus-

" Hi. This is the qmail-send program at'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.
Giving up on"

Don't know why but I found it hilarious...I mean talk about machines with intelligence, emotions, the mail server apologises, pleads that its giving up because its fatigued and that its sorry that it "did'nt work out".Relax yaar...

This is an update to the last post.A friend received this in his email when he did'nt subscribe to a particular service.

Glad to know atleast machines have feelings! May I (mis)quote:

'The danger from computers is not that they will eventually get as emotional as men, but that we will meanwhile agree to meet them halfway'

Yeah its strange how some of these things go around!!

I have a feeling there was a veiled attempt at trying to convey something else through that comment you left.
