Geekcode, geekword

In earlier days of the internet, you'd sometimes see a signature that looked like this:


-----BEGIN GEEK CODE BLOCK-----
Version: 3.1
GIT d(-) s(+):() a++ C$ UBLVSC(on)$ P+$ L$ !E(---) !W(++)$ N(++)
!o !K-- !w(---) !O M$ !V PS(++) PE Y PGP !t !5 !X !R tv(+) b$ DI
!D !G !e h(---) r(+++) y(+++)
------END GEEK CODE BLOCK------
 

Which could be generated and decoded by something like http://www.joereiss.net/geek/

See http://www.geekcode.com

Not very many people do this anymore.

The successful construction of all machinery depends on the perfection of the tools employed; and whoever is a master in the arts of tool-making possesses the key to the construction of all machines... The contrivance and construction of tools must therefore ever stand at the head of the industrial arts. (Charles Babbage)
