Jon's Decoded Geek Code

This is a recent explanation of Jon's Geek Code.

 

GEEK TYPE CODE [GCS/B/L]

Geek of Computer Science, Geek of Business, Geek of Literature.

 

GEEK DRESS CODE [d-]

I'm usually in jeans and a t-shirt.

 

GEEK SHAPE CODE [s-:+]

I look up to most people. I'm a little rounder than most.

 

GEEK AGE CODE [!a?]

It's none of your business how old I am. I am immortal.

 

GEEK COMPUTERS CODE [C$++(++++)]

My tendencies on this issue range from: "Computers are a tool, nothing more. I use it when it serves my purpose. Getting paid for it! Computers are a large part of my existence. When I get up in the morning, the first thing I do is log myself in. I play games or mud on weekends, but still manage to stay off of academic probation.", to: "I'll be first in line to get the new cybernetic interface installed into my skull."

 

GEEK UNIX CODE [UL$++++]

I use GNU/Linux exclusively. I have a unix account to do my stuff in. Getting paid for it! I am the sysadmin. If you try and crack my machine don't be surprised if the municipal works department gets an "accidental" computer-generated order to start a new landfill on your front lawn or your quota is reduced to 4K.

 

GEEK UNIX CODE [US+++]

I use SunOS/Solaris exclusively. I don't need to crack /etc/passwd because I just modified su so that it doesn't prompt me. The admin staff doesn't even know I'm here. If you don't understand what I just said, this category does NOT apply to you!

 

GEEK PERL CODE [P+]

I know of perl. I like perl. I just haven't learned much perl, but it is on my agenda.

 

GEEK GNU/LINUX CODE [L++++]

I am a GNU/Linux wizard. I munch C code for breakfast and have enough room left over for a kernel debugging. I have so many patches installed that I lost track about ten versions ago. GNU/Linux newbies consider me a net.god.

 

GEEK EMACS CODE [E(-)]

My tendencies on this issue range from: "Yeah, I know what emacs is, and use it as my regular editor.", to: "Emacs is too big and bloated for my tastes"

 

GEEK WORLD WIDE WEB CODE [W+++]

I am a WebMaster. Don't even think about trying to view my homepage without the latest version of Netscape. When I'm not on my normal net connection, I surf the web using my Newton and a cellular modem.

 

GEEK USENET CODE [N+++(++)]

My tendencies on this issue range from: "I read so many news groups that the next batch of news comes in before I finish reading the last batch, and I have to read for about 2 hours straight before I'm caught up on the morning's news. Then there's the afternoon...", to: "I read all the news in a select handful of groups."

 

GEEK USENET ORACLE CODE [o++]

I have made the Best Of Oracularities.

 

GEEK KIBO CODE [K]

I know who Kibo is.

 

GEEK MICROSOFT WINDOWS CODE [w++$>---]

I write MS Windows programs in C and think about using C++ someday. I've written at least one DLL. Getting paid for it! But someday I'd like to say: "Windows has set back the computing industry by at least 10 years. Bill Gates should be drawn, quartered, hung, shot, poisoned, disembowelled, and then REALLY hurt."

 

GEEK OS/2 CODE [O]

I finally managed to get OS/2 installed but wasn't too terribly impressed.

 

GEEK MACINTOSH CODE [M+]

A Mac has it's uses and I use it quite often.

 

GEEK VMS CODE [V]

I've used VMS.

 

GEEK POLITICS & SOCIAL ISSUES CODE [PS++(+)]

My tendencies on this issue range from: "I give to liberal causes. I march for gay rights. I'm a card carrying member of the ACLU. Keep abortion safe and legal.", to: "My whole concept of liberalism is that nobody has the right to tell anybody else what to do, on either side of the political fence. If you don't like it, turn the bloody channel."

 

GEEK POLITICS & ECONOMIC ISSUES CODE [PE(-)]

My tendencies on this issue range from: "Distrust both government and business.", to: "It's ok to increase government spending, so we can help more poor people. Tax the rich! Cut the defense budget!"

 

GEEK CYPHERPUNKS CODE [Y++]

I am on the cypherpunks mailing list and active around Usenet. I never miss an opportunity to talk about the evils of Clipper and ITAR and the NSA. Orwell's 1984 is more than a story, it is a warning to our's and future generations. I'm a member of the EFF.

 

GEEK PGP CODE [PGP++]

I have the most recent version and use it regularly.

 

GEEK STAR TREK CODE [t+*]

It's a damn fine TV show and is one of the only things good on television any more. I identify with Barclay, the greatest of the Trek Geeks.

 

GEEK BABYLON 5 CODE [5++]

Finally a show that shows what a real future would look like. None of this Picardian "Let's talk about it and be friends" crap. And what's this? We finally get to see a bathroom! Over on that Enterprise, they've been holding it for over seven years!

 

GEEK X FILES CODE [X+]

I've Converted my family and watch the show when I remember. It's really kinda fun.

 

GEEK ROLE-PLAYING CODE [R+++]

I've written and published my own gaming materials.

 

GEEK TELEVISION CODE [tv+]

I watch some tv every day.

 

GEEK BOOKS CODE [b+++]

I consume a few books a week as part of a staple diet.

 

GEEK DILBERT CODE [DI++++(++)]

My tendencies on this issue range from: "I've received mail from Scott Adams. I'm in the DNRC (Dogbert's New Ruling Class).", to: "I work with people that act a lot like Dilbert and his boss."

 

GEEK DOOM CODE [D++]

I've played the shareware version and bought the real one and I'm actually pretty good at the game. I occasionally download PWAD files and play them too.

 

THE GEEK CODE [G+]

I was once G++ (or higher), but the new versions are getting too long and too complicated.

 

GEEK EDUCATION CODE [e++*]

Got a Baccalaureate degree. I learned everything there is to know about life from the "Hitchhiker's Trilogy".

 

GEEK HOUSING CODE [h(++)----]

My tendencies on this issue range from: "Living in a cave with 47 computers and an Internet feed, located near a Dominoes pizza. See !d.", to: "Married with children - Al Bundy can sympathize."

 

GEEK HOUSING CODE [h*]

I'm not sure where I live anymore. This lab/workplace seems like home to me.

 

GEEK RELATIONSHIPS CODE [r+++]

Found someone, dated, and am now married.

 

GEEK SEX CODE [y++++]

Male. I have a few little rug rats to prove I've been there. Besides, with kids around, who has time for sex?
