    I went to the Salt Mill in Lebanon for dinner with some friends. I saw this license plate on a truck outside. When I came inside there was a table of geeky guys including one guy with a t-shirt that said something about talking in hex but I was too shy to go spin him around and look at it.

    For those of you who don't know the acronym it stand for "problem exists between keyboard and chair" and is a classic tech support end user description.

      Awesome! You should have talked to him - geek guys seem to love it when a geeky girl actually understands something they're into. Although, being geeks, they sometimes get rather flustered and don't know how to react.

      I've never heard that one before. Hilarious.

      I am the owner of the truck in question and was wearing my "How many people can read hex if only you and dead people can read hex?" t-shirt that night. Still have the plate. On a different truck now. The geeky group you saw was the Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee Linux Users Group. If you had checked the parking lot, you would likely have found more cool plates. We met once a month, usually at Dartmouth but on occasion, we have a social night at the Salt Hill.
