Decoded Geek Code
GEEK TYPE CODE [GCS/O]
Geek of Computer Science, Geek of Other.
GEEK DRESS CODE [d+(-)]
My tendencies on this issue range from: "Good leisure-wear. Slacks, button-shirt, etc. No jeans, tennis shoes, or t-shirts.", to: "I'm usually in jeans and a t-shirt."
GEEK SHAPE CODE [s]
I'm of average height and build
GEEK AGE CODE [a]
My age is 30-35.
GEEK COMPUTERS CODE [C+$]
Computers are fun and I enjoy using them. I play a mean game of DOOM! and can use a word processor without resorting to the manual too often. I know that a 3.5" disk is not a hard disk. I also know that when it says 'press any key to continue', I don't have to look for a key labeled 'ANY'.
I get paid to work with computers.
GEEK UNIX CODE [!U]
I refuse to categorize myself on UNIX.
GEEK PERL CODE [P]
I know Perl exists, but that's all.
GEEK GNU/LINUX CODE [L+]
I've managed to get GNU/Linux installed and even used it a few times. It seems like it is just another OS.
GEEK EMACS CODE [!E]
I refuse to categorize myself on Emacs.
GEEK WORLD WIDE WEB CODE [W+]
I have the latest version of Netscape, and wander the web only when there's something specific I'm looking for.
GEEK USENET CODE [N-]
News is a waste of my time and I avoid it completely.
GEEK USENET ORACLE CODE [o]
I've submitted a question, but it has never been incarnated.
GEEK KIBO CODE [K-]
I don't know who Kibo is.
GEEK MICROSOFT WINDOWS CODE [w(--)]
My tendencies on this issue range from: "Ok, so I use MS Windows, I don't have to like it.", to: "MS Windows is a joke operating system. Hell, it's not even an operating system. NT is Not Tough enough for me either. 95 is how may times it will crash an hour."
GEEK OS/2 CODE [O+++@] (I took this to be OSX as we've moved on!)
I live, eat and breathe OS/2. All of my hard drives are HPFS. I am the Anti-Gates. But that varies...
GEEK MACINTOSH CODE [M+]
A Mac has it's uses and I use it quite often.
GEEK VMS CODE [V?]
VMS? I don't even know what that is...
GEEK POLITICS & SOCIAL ISSUES CODE [PS+@]
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. But that varies...
GEEK POLITICS & ECONOMIC ISSUES CODE [PE-]
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'm pretty indifferent on the whole issue.
GEEK PGP CODE [PGP-]
I don't have anything to hide.
GEEK STAR TREK CODE [t++>+++@]
It's the best show around. I have all the episodes and the movies on tape and can quote entire scenes verbatim. I've built a few of the model kits too. But you'll never catch me at one of those conventions. Those people are kooks. I aspire to be able to say It's not just a TV show, it's a religion. I know all about warp field dynamics and the principles behind the transporter. I have memorized the TECH manual. I speak Klingon. I go to cons with Vulcan ears on. I have no life. But that varies...
GEEK BABYLON 5 CODE [5+]
Babylon 5 certainly presents a fresh perspective in the Sci-Fi universe. I watch it weekly.
GEEK X FILES CODE [X+@]
I've Converted my family and watch the show when I remember. It's really kinda fun. But that varies...
GEEK ROLE-PLAYING CODE [R@]
Role-Playing? That's just something to do to kill a Saturday afternoon. But that varies...
GEEK TELEVISION CODE [tv@]
I watch only the shows that are actually worthwhile, such as those found on PBS. But that varies...
GEEK BOOKS CODE [b+]
I enjoy reading, but don't get the time very often.
GEEK DILBERT CODE [!DI]
I refuse to categorize myself on Dilbert.
GEEK DOOM CODE [D(---)]
My tendencies on this issue range from: "I've played the game and I'm pretty indifferent.", to: "To hell with Doom, I miss Zork."
THE GEEK CODE [G]
I know what the geek code is and even did up this code.
GEEK EDUCATION CODE [e++]
Got a Baccalaureate degree.
GEEK HOUSING CODE [h---]
GEEK RELATIONSHIPS CODE [r+++]
Found someone, dated, and am now married.
GEEK SEX CODE [x+++]
Female. I'm married, so I can get it (theoretically) whenever I want.
