In earlier days of the internet, you'd sometimes see a signature that looked like this:
-----BEGIN GEEK CODE BLOCK----- Version: 3.1 GIT d(-) s(+):() a++ C$ UBLVSC(on)$ P+$ L$ !E(---) !W(++)$ N(++) !o !K-- !w(---) !O M$ !V PS(++) PE Y PGP !t !5 !X !R tv(+) b$ DI !D !G !e h(---) r(+++) y(+++) ------END GEEK CODE BLOCK------
Which could be generated and decoded by something like https://www.joereiss.net/geek/
Not very many people do this anymore.
Got something to add? Send me email.

The man who receives five thousand dollars a year wants six thousand dollars a year, and the man who owns eight or nine hundred thousand dollars will want a hundred thousand dollars more to make it a million, while the man who has his millions will want everything he can lay his hands on and then raise his voice against the poor devil who wants ten cents more a day.
