Now hiring Geeks

I posted this geek poem on my door at work:

Roses are #FF0000
Violets are #0000FF
All my base
Are belong to you

And nobody here gets it! We need more Geeks!

15 December 2006 update:
ThinkGeek is where I first saw this poem

    Well that may be easy to explain maybe all your geeks are little endian. In a windows bitmap Roses are #0000FF, This screws me up every time I am working some of our Legacy VGA controller IP.

    It wasn’t the hex-coded colors that got everyone. It was the “All your base are belong to us” reference. That had everyone scratching their heads

    Wow, even I get that one…

    Hope you don’t mind, but I added this poem to my sig (properly credited, of course) and your blog just picked up a few new readers on the strength of it.

    Quotes from new readers:

    “i *heart* bill”

    “LOL! that’s awesome!”

    “i think i just peed myself. outstanding work, geek squad”

    Not as bad as “there are only 0010 types of people in the world: those who get it, and those who don’t.”

  6. Bill says:

    I can’t claim to have written it. In fact, I’m not sure where I got it. One of my ramblings about the web, I suppose.

  7. Bill says:

    Look! Kim has a blog! I’m not sure I knew that…

  8. Kim says:

    I’m not sure how much I’ve announced it. The URL will end up in the Christmas letter (yet to be written…) for those who haven’t stumbled upon it as of yet.

    Hey, even *I* get that one.

    Must figure out way to visit in next year – missing Bill.
