GEEK AGE CODE [a]
My age is 30-39.

on weekends, but still manage to stay off of academic probation.
GEEK UNIX CODE [US$]
I use SunOS/Solaris exclusively. Getting paid for it!
GEEK PERL CODE [P+++(-)$]
My tendencies on this issue range from: "Perl is a very powerful
programming tool. Not only do I no longer write shell scripts, I
also no longer use awk or sed. I use Perl for all programs of less

GEEK WORLD WIDE WEB CODE [W-(+++)]
My tendencies on this issue range from: "The web is really a pain.
Life was so much easier when you could transfer information by
simple ASCII. Now everyone won't even consider your ideas unless
you spiff them up with bandwidth-consuming pictures and pointless
information links.", to: "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 MICROSOFT WINDOWS CODE [w+(---)$]
My tendencies on this issue range from: "I have installed my own
custom sounds, wallpaper, and screen savers so my PC walks and talks
like a fun house. Oh yeah, I have a hundred TrueType(tm) fonts that
I've installed but never used. I never lose Minesweeper and
Solitaire", to: "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." Getting paid for

I finally managed to get OS/2 installed but wasn't too terribly
GEEK MACINTOSH CODE [!M]
I refuse to categorize myself on Macintosh.
GEEK VMS CODE [!V]
I refuse to categorize myself on VMS.
GEEK POLITICS & SOCIAL ISSUES CODE [PS+]
My whole concept of liberalism is that nobody has the right to tell

GEEK PGP CODE [PGP->+++]
I don't have anything to hide. But someday I'd like to say: "I
don't send or answer mail that is not encrypted, or at the very
least signed. If you are reading this without decrypting it first,
something is wrong. IT DIDN'T COME FROM ME!"
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
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!
