Age [a]



Computers [C++]

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.


Mostly "I have a Unix account to do my stuff in", but it varies.

Perl [P?]

I don't know what's that.

Linux [L]

I know what Linux is, but that's about all.

Emacs [E?]

I don't know what's that.

World-Wide Web [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.

USENET News [N?]

I don't know what's that.

USENET Oracle [o?]

I don't know what's that.

Kibo [K--?]

Unknown value --?

Microsoft Windows [w+]

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.

OS/2 [O?]

I don't know what's that.

Macintosh [M+]

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

VMS [V?]

I don't know what's that.


Political and Social Issues [PS++]

Politics and Economic Issues [PE+]

Balance the budget with spending cuts and an amendment.

Cypherpunks [Y?]

I don't know what's that.


I refuse to have anything with that!


Star Trek [t+]

It's a damn fine TV show and is one of the only things good on television any more.

Babylon 5 [5]

I've seen it, I am pretty indifferent to it.

X-Files [X++]

This is one of the better shows I've seen. I wish I'd taped everything from the start at SP, because I'm wearing out my EP tapes. I'll periodically debate online. I've Converted at least 5 people. I've gotten a YAXA.

Role Playing [!R]

I refuse to have anything with that!

Television [tv+]

I watch some tv every day.

Books [b++]

I find the time to get through at least one new book a month.

Dilbert [DI++]

I work with people that act a lot like Dilbert and his boss.

DOOM! [D+]

It's a fun, action game that is a nice diversion on a lazy afternoon.

The Geek Code [G]

I know what the geek code is and even did up this code.


Education [e++]

Got a Bachelors degree.

Housing [h---]

Married, (persons living romantically with someone might as well label themselves h---, you're as good as there already.).

Relationships [r+++]

Found someone, dated, and am now married.

Sex [y+++]

Male. I'm married, so I can get it (theoretically) whenever I want.

The Code of the Geeks is a simple and compact way how to tell the others about your geeky personality. The Geek Code consists of a series of letters, numbers and symbols, each describing you in some category. Sometimes, it's a little cryptic to the uninitiated, and here comes our little tool to help you.
