GEEK DRESS CODE [d-(+)]
My tendencies on this issue range from: "I'm usually in jeans and a
t-shirt.", to: "Good leisure-wear. Slacks, button-shirt, etc. No
jeans, tennis shoes, or t-shirts."

an average geek."

GEEK COMPUTERS CODE [C+++$]
You mean there is life outside of Internet? You're shittin' me! I
haven't dragged myself to class in weeks. Getting paid for it!
GEEK UNIX CODE [UB++++LS++++$]
I use BSD, GNU/Linux and SunOS/Solaris. 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.
Getting paid for it!
GEEK PERL CODE [P+++$@>++++]
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 than a thousand lines. Getting paid for
it! But that varies... But someday I'd like to say: "I don't
write Perl, I speak it. Perl has superseded all other programming
languages. I firmly believe that all programs can be reduced to a
Perl one-liner. I use Perl to achieve U+++ status."
GEEK GNU/LINUX CODE [L++@]
I use GNU/Linux ALMOST exclusively on my system. I've given up
trying to achieve GNU/Linux.God status, but welcome the OS as a
replacement for DOS. I only boot to DOS to play games. But that
GEEK EMACS CODE [E-]
Emacs is too big and bloated for my tastes
GEEK WORLD WIDE WEB CODE [W++(+++)@]
My tendencies on this issue range from: "I have a homepage. I surf
daily. My homepage is advertised in my .signature.", 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." But that varies...
GEEK USENET CODE [N++(+)]

select handful of groups.", to: "I read news recreationally when I

GEEK MICROSOFT WINDOWS CODE [w++++(---)@]
My tendencies on this issue range from: "I have Windows, Windows
95, Windows NT, and Windows NT Advanced Server all running on my SMP
RISC machine. I haven't seen daylight in six months.", 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." But that varies...
GEEK OS/2 CODE [O]
I finally managed to get OS/2 installed but wasn't too terribly

indifferent about it."

My tendencies on this issue range from: "I've used VMS.", to:
"Unix is much better than VMS for my computing needs."
GEEK POLITICS & SOCIAL ISSUES CODE [PS+(-)]
My tendencies on this issue range from: "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.", to: "Label records! Keep dirty stuff
off the TV and the Internet."
GEEK POLITICS & ECONOMIC ISSUES CODE [PE]
Distrust both government and business.
GEEK CYPHERPUNKS CODE [Y+]
I have an interest and concern in privacy issues, but in reality I
am not really all that active or vocal.
GEEK PGP CODE [PGP++]
I have the most recent version and use it regularly.
GEEK STAR TREK CODE [t++(+++)@]
My tendencies on this issue range from: "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.", to: "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+(++)]
My tendencies on this issue range from: "Babylon 5 certainly
presents a fresh perspective in the Sci-Fi universe. I watch it
weekly.", to: "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
GEEK X FILES CODE [X(+)]

about life from the "Hitchhiker's Trilogy". But someday I'd like to
say: "Got a Masters degree." But someday I'd like to say: "I am
GEEK HOUSING CODE [h*+()>++>----]
My tendencies on this issue range from: "I'm not sure where I live
anymore. This lab/workplace seems like home to me. Living alone,
get out once a week to buy food, no more than once a month to do
laundry. All surfaces covered.", to: "Friends come over to visit
every once in a while to talk about Geek things. There is a place
for them to sit." But someday I'd like to say: "Living in a cave

children - Al Bundy can sympathize."

having sex because I'm a nun or a priest.""
