Firstly, I start this post with an apology.
My last post discussed how, if you go to Google, search 241543903, and look at the images, you'll see lots of photos of people with their head in a freezer. I failed to accredit the person who told me about this in the first place. This was raised by the aforementioned person whilst out on Saturday night.
So - thanks Kirsty!

Topic of the day - do you have a Geek Code?
A Geek Code, created by the great Robert Hayden, is a code to identify how much of a geek you are, and what you are a geek about. You indicate your answers to a number of questions, with each answer generating a code. For example, in my geek code below, it starts "GIT" - rather than being my nickname, it stands for "Geek of Information Technology", as opposed to "GCS" which is Geek of Computer Science - this reflects the fact that, while I'm a geek and I'm (relatively) good at IT, I'm not able to make software applications.
The 'original' home of the Geek Code is at http://www.geekcode.com/geek.html - here the Geek Code stands at version 3.12, and is unfortunately a little out of date (dating from 1996) - it talks about things like OS/2 and Emacs - so a newer 'evolution' of the code, at a proposed version 3.20 by Vincent Graux is available at http://www.fecj.org/extra/The-Geek-Code-Codec-Evolution-Traduction-French-Francais.html
My v3.20 Geek Code is:
-----BEGIN GEEK CODE BLOCK----- Version: 3.20 GIT d- s+:+ a c+ C++ B-- 7- w L M-- u W+++ H+ Z--- F+ PS PE+ Y- PGP T++ S+++ J++ R m tv+ b++ DI+++ D++ e+++ h---- A+ r++ !y ------END GEEK CODE BLOCK------
At http://www.fecj.org/extra/The-Geek-Code-Codec-Evolution-Traduction-French-Francais.html there is also a decoder of the above geek code, so rather than trying to work out the code by hand you can copy and paste it in.
Let me know your geek code!
