Geeky Bumper Stickers


Bumper stickers give people a chance to express their personality. So, what happens when the car owner is a dedicated computer geek (like us Pingdom-ites)?

This is what happens. :)

There is no place like home

The most famous IP address of them all, good old localhost.

Computer geek overload

So much going on here. Stickers about LAN parties, Intel, Red Hat Linux, the GEEKCHK license plate, and the slightly unsettling “I read your email” sticker. :) We’re guessing this one is a sysadmin.

Microsoft irony

At least, we think this is irony. :)

The truck device

Whoever the owner is, he/she is most certainly a *nix geek.

True Linux dedication – Tux for president!

What, not voting for Torvalds? Awww…

Driver fond of PHP

Subtle statement from a PHP Web programmer perhaps?

That’s it, we’re heading for Facebook…

Somebody cares A LOT about fonts

The tiny URL there actually leads to a whole website about the Comic Sans font.

Geek overload, again

A little bit of everything here, with a certain focus on games it would seem.

404 error, sticker not found

Ah, yes, a good old 404 page, only in real life.

Found at Cathode Tan.

Political statement, geek style

Sometimes HTML can say a lot in very little space.

Apple overdose by Mac addict

Someone showing an abundance (and then some) of Apple love.

Firefox dedication

It’s our preferred Web browser here at Pingdom, and clearly this person agrees.

Chaser of wireless networks

War driving is the practice of driving around scanning for wireless networks.

Blogger not happy about criticism

Anyone in the mood of actually calling 1-888-STFU to see what happens? :)

You may recall that we had a post about geeky vanity license plates a while ago. Now all we need is a car with a geeky license plate AND a cool geeky bumper sticker. :) That would be perfection! (Actually, one car above managed this feat.)

We are sure to have missed some really cool examples of cars with geeky bumper stickers, so if you know of any, please put a link in the comments.

The "There is no place like" bumper sticker is so subtle, and yet, you'll notice that a lot of geeks will give you kudos to that. Also, the "404 error, sticker not found" was the one that made me laugh the most, since it's totally ironic.
