Chris' geek code

Ok so far I get the part about how early you have to get up to moderate the forum and how little it pays. And how the latest image and video software costs. Fair enough, but we all gotta pay.

Where the rebus got me was the Las Vegas part? How tall was she?

Anyway, if someone can also begin to decypher the tag code that would be helpful. I think the release date for Canon's next model is buried in there.

This is Chris Hurd's "Geek Code" I win a free Canon XL3???? :))) I hope he doesn't mind me posting my cracked find!

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 or mud on weekends, but still manage to stay off of academic probation.
... to ...
Computers are fun and I enjoy using them. I play a mean game of DOOM! and can use a word processor without resorting to the manual too often. I know that a 3.5" disk is not a hard disk. I also know that when it says 'press any key to continue', I don't have to look for a key labeled 'ANY'.

I've don't know what Unix is.
Perl: P--
Perl users are sick, twisted programmers who are just showing off.
Linux: L-
I have no desire to use Linux and frankly don't give a rats patootie about it. There are other, better, operating systems out there. Like Mac, DOS, or Amiga-OS. Or, better yet even, would be another free Unix OS like FreeBSD.

Politics-Social: PS+
My whole concept of liberalism is that nobody has the right to tell anybody else what to do, on either side of the political fence. If you don't like it, turn the bloody channel.
Politics-Economic: PE-
It's ok to increase government spending, so we can help more poor people. Tax the rich! Cut the defense budget!
Cypherpunks: Y+
I have an interest and concern in privacy issues, but in reality I am not really all that active or vocal.
"Finger me for my public key"
