  • GE Geek of Engineering.
  • d- I'm usually in jeans and a t-shirt.
  • s:++ I'm of average height, I'm a linebacker candidate.
  • a+++ 60 and up.
  • C++++ I'll be first in line to get the new cybernetic interface installed into my skull.
  • UL50 I've been using Unix for 50 years.
  • P+++ I've used Perl to earn a decent living.
  • L(U)+++ I use Ubuntu Linux exclusively on my system, and I work mostly from command line.
  • E+++ Emacs is my login shell!! M-x doctor is my psychologist! I use emacs to control my TV and toaster oven! All you vi people don't know what you're missing! I read alt.religion.emacs, alt.sex.emacs, and comp.os.emacs.
  • W1.0+++ I am an original Netizen, and I see no need for scrolling baloney.
  • N+++ I read so many newsgroups that the next batch of news comes in before I finish reading the last batch, and I have to read for about 2 hours straight before I'm caught up on the morning's news. Then there's the afternoon.
  • K+ I like Kibo. If you know, you know.
  • w--- Windows is bloatware.
  • V I've used VMS. Meh.
  • PS+ My whole concept of politics is that nobody has the right to tell anybody else what to do, on either side of the political fence.
  • PE Distrust both government and business.
  • f--- In matters of religion, I distrust all human claims for the one true way. That doesn't mean I don't trust scripture.
  • c+++ I am a cyberpunk all the way, including the music.
  • Y+ I have an interest and concern in privacy issues, but in reality I am not really all that active or vocal.
  • PGP++ I have the most recent version and use it regularly.
  • t+++ Star Trek is 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 wear an IDIC. I have no life.
  • 5 Babylon 6 is sub-par. The acting is wooden, the special effects are obviously poor quality. In general, it seems like a very cheap Star Trek ripoff.
  • X- It's ok if you like paranoia and conspiracy stories, but, let's face it, X-Files is crap.
  • R+++ I've built and run my own dungeons for money. At cons. With 100 little envelopes of dice I brought with me.
  • tv--- Not much on TV anymore, though I sometimes watch it when I'm petting the cat.
  • b++ I find the time to get through at least one new book a month.
  • D--- Dilbert is a stupid bore.
  • xkcd I check out xkcd from time to time; sometimes it's really funny.
  • G I know what the geek code is and even did up this code.
  • e++++ I am well-educated, mostly by myself, but I did get some college degrees, too.
  • h+++ I live in an ecologically sound tiny house, with a Geek of Nursing who watches Babylon 5.
  • r+++ I found someone, we dated, and we've been married for decades now.
