Who am I? | Geek code

The following is a detailed explanation of my geek code block (see the Code of the Geeks for more information):

  • Type of Geek: GCS/GS/GAT
    • Geek of Computer Science
    • Geek of Science (Physics, Chemistry, Biology, etc.)
    • Geek of All Trades. For those geeks that can do anything and everything.
  • Dress: d-(d+)(!d)
    • I'm usually in long pants and a t-shirt.
      Good leisure-wear. Slacks, button-shirt, etc. No jeans, tennis shoes, or t-shirts.
      No clothing. Quite a fashion statement, don't you think?
  • Shape: s+:+
    • I'm a little taller/rounder than most.
  • Age: a45>a?
    • 40-49 (45).
  • 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 on weekends (mostly F1), but still manage to stay off of academic probation.
      I'll be first in line to get the new cybernetic interface installed into my skull.
  • UNIX: U&U++
    • I had(!) a Unix account to do my stuff in.
      I've get the entire admin ticked off at me because I am always using all of the CPU time and trying to run programs that I don't have access to. I'm going to try cracking /etc/passwd next week, just don't tell anyone.
  • Perl: P--
    • Perl users are sick, twisted programmers who are just showing off.
  • Linux: L++(++++)
    • I use Linux ALMOST exclusively on my system. I've given up trying to achieve Linux God status, but welcome the OS as a replacement for DOS. I only boot to DOS to play games.
      I am a Linux wizard. I munch C code for breakfast and have enough room left over for a kernel debugging. I have so many patches installed that I lost track about ten versions ago. Linux newbies consider me a net.god.
  • Emacs: E----
    • Emacs sucks! pico forever!!!
  • World Wide Web: W++
    • I have a homepage. I surf daily. My homepage is advertised in my .signature.
  • USENET News: N
    • Usenet News? Sure, I read that once.
  • USENET Oracle: o?
    • Euhm... dunno?
  • Kibo: K-
    • I don't know who Kibo is.
  • Microsoft Windows: w
    • Ok, so I use MS Windows, I don't have to like it.
  • OS/2: O-
    • Tried it, didn't like it.
  • Macintosh: M--
    • Macs do more than suck. They make a user stupid by allowing them to use the system without knowing what they are doing. Mac weenies have lower IQs than the fuzz in my navel.
  • VMS: V-
    • Unix is much better than VMS for my computing needs.
  • Political and Social Issues: PS@
    • I really don't have an opinion; nobody's messing with my freedoms right now.
  • Politics and Economic Issues: PE
    • Distrust both government and business.
  • Cypherpunks: Y+
    • I have an interest and concern in privacy issues, but in reality I am not really all that active or vocal.
  • PGP: PGP
    • I've used it, but stopped long ago.
  • Star Trek: t+++
    • 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.
  • Babylon 5: 5+++
    • I am a True Worshipper of the Church of Joe who lives eats breathes and thinks Babylon 5, and has Evil thoughts about stealing Joe's videotape archives just to see episodes earlier. I am planning to break into the bank and steal the triple-encoded synopsis of the 5-year arc.
  • X-Files: X+++
    • This is the BEST show on TV, and it's about time. I've seen everything David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson have ever done that been recorded and I'm a loyal Duchovny/Anderson fan. I've Converted at least 10 people. Update: it's not the best show anymore... Babylon 5 and Farscape are!
  • Role Playing: R--
    • Role-Players are instruments of pure evil.
  • Television: tv++
    • I just leave the tv on, to make sure I don't miss anything.
  • Books: b+(++)
    • I enjoy reading, but don't get the time very often.
      I find the time to get through at least one new book a month.
  • Dilbert: !DI
    • Don't care.
  • DOOM!: D+
    • It's a fun, action game that is a nice diversion on a lazy afternoon.
  • The Geek Code: G++
    • I know what each letter means, but sometimes have to look up the specifics.
  • Education: e++++>$
    • Managed to get my PhD. I do my research for a living.
  • Housing: h++(----)
    • Living in a cave with 47 computers and an Internet feed, located near a Dominoes pizza.
      Married with children - Al Bundy can sympathize.
  • Relationships: r+++
    • Found someone, dated, and am now married.
  • Sex: y+++**
    • I'm married, so I can get it (theoretically) whenever I want.
    • I've been known to make perverts look like angels.
