Good Coding Related License Plates
Anyone have any good coding related license plates:
A Volkswagon Beetle with the plate:
On a bright yellow car: FFFF00
1 C DEV
Not coding, but a sys admin in Illinois:
Not exactly coding-related, but in the middle of the dot-com boom I saw a Porsche 911 with the license plate:
My actual license place is:
Seen in Oregon: "1000101", which is 69 in binary...
CAFEBABE and DEADBEEF (both hex) -- deadbeef might not go over for the DMV, though, if they're sooper picky. They might think it's a euphemism or a threat or something.
I've seen a ROOT-USR drive by once...
I used to work with a guy who had a VA plate hanging over his desk: KILL -9
- former car owner in Queens
The best one I think was don Box's IUNKNWN license plate.
At Berkeley there was a dude who parked on campus with a VMUNIX license plate.
Get your hands on an 8 or so character domain name, any random sequence will do, and then get that license plate. Get "www." and ".com" bumper stickers to the left & right of it.
Even better if you can do it with the - in the right spot. Then again, just register (your licenseplate).com anyway, it's probably available.
I've seen Illinois HTTP 404 and Minnesota USE SSH.
"Don't get a personalised number plate in your name; it is much cheaper to change your name to that of your current number plate!"
Richard Feynman apparently had QUANTUM as his plate. Not really IT-related, but still pretty cool.
A BMW owned by a friend of mine in Arizona:
I occasionally see a new Porsche 911 turbo in Brisbane (Australia) - which isn't exactly silicon valley or redmond in terms of programmer population - with the number place MSFT.

Oh, I just was reading another thread and came up with a couple more (probably wouldn't be able to get these though):
How the3 hell can I register to use www.licenseplate.com it keeps looking for a username and password. I would liek to have it for refrence.
