Spotted - The Geekiest License Plates

"Alert! Geek spotted driving a Toyota Camry".  "No, I didn't have a geek scanner, he just had a license plate with 'MS-DOS' on his car", that's what James told us, when he sent us  the link with a geeky license plate.

So, we decided to do a little 'geeky license plate' spotting of our own and tag our favorites.  So, with out any wait, we present our  favorite geek license plates  starting from the obvious (via Flickr and thanks to all those who spotted them):

HTTP-COM license plate


binary license plate

HTTP license plate

Away from Keyboard? :P

B VMUNIX

A friend of mine had "B VMUNIX" on his Virginia license plate for years ... and it's the first thing you type to manually boot a BSD-based unix, such as SunOS.

heh heh, My Plate is MAC+OS... the dash was taken, so someone has MAC-OS in NH

IEFBR14

I remember seeing this one 15 years ago. For those of you that have never worked in a IBM Mainframe(MVS) environment IEFBR14 is the name of a utility program that does nothing! The only instruction in the program is a BRanch to the address in register 14 which is the exit point of the program. The purpose of this "do nothing" program was to allow the JES(Job Execution System) to process file dispositions specified in the JCL(Job Control Language) executing the program. Most commonly it would be used to delete temporary files at the end of a job or allocate new files at the end of a job.

I used to proudly go around

I used to proudly go around Virginia with HTTPS on my plates, but gave it up when I sold the car. Someone already had HTTP. :)

Santa Clara is geek Mecca

I saw a license plate that only a geek could love: "1394". I guess firewire wouldn't fit.
