The Perl Geek Code is kind of a cute thing to have, but I don't bother with it.
I'm still learning all there is to learn about Perl, Apache (1.3, 2.0 and 2.2), testing, Linux, mySQL, PostgreSQL, systems administration and, yes, software development in general.
Just today, in fact, my SysAdmin was showing me stuff in /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ under Red Hat .. there's the provision for different network profiles, and if any profiles exist, they override the default one that most SysAdmins know about.
I'll probably never get to a point of +++++ in any of that stuff, but as long as I continue to knowledge++ every day, I won't miss any of the Geek Codes.
