in reply to Dress Code

Well, as my geek code says I can dress up, but most of the time it's jeans and t-shirts. Occasionaly shirts of the banded collar and long sleeve variety. I once worked for a computer money laundering scheme that was part of a bank. For that I had to wear tie, slacks, etc... They didn't like the chainmail tie either.
I would say my favorite shirt was one with a programmer at his computer with "Work or DIE Project" on screen with the caption "I work best with a gun to my head" Same artist has a shirt with a caffiene bell curve with the the top being "See God" and then the end of the curve having "Triple Shotgun Murder"

I worked for one company that distributed a T-shirt with "*!$# Symantec" on it. (We were being sued by them)

    Well, i don't know what a geek is, well i do, but it means so many things:
    a) Someone who's intelligent and cares about grades.
    b) Someone who has a very high level of miopia and doesn't afford contact lenses.
    c) Someone who has i huge interest on computers (and talks about it all the time).
    But i think that a geek means nothing, i think it's all that is bullshit, like, i'm tired of ignorance in this world, judging people just 'cause they care, and missuses words without knowing what they really mean, and let's not talk about racism 'cause i don't want to get pissed.

    Bad node, i apologize for this one too guys, it's irrelevant, i should have postd this on in sorry.
      Negative critism like that will get you nowhere on this
      site, my friend. I use share your sentiments, but no more!

      I stopped worrying about labels and dress code
      and just about everything else superficial.

      You are correct, it is a bunch of bovine excrement , quite
      runny at that - but WTF do you expect from this world?

      Nobody ever told me it was going to be easy, so I learned
      to enjoy what I can before I die (and start using Emacs).



        ... and waste all that effort making peace with the world? Emacs in the mind-killer. Use vim, my son, and find true happiness.

        <g>, in case it's not so obvious ...
