It seems that the project, while obviously still in its infancy, has lots of potential as a public service.

The Geek Code desperately needs updating, but in any case here's mine (as of 2010-02-28):

Version: 3.12

If you really care about knowing what that all means, you either know the code already, or you can get it decoded for you here.
