Wearing your loyalties on your . . . bumper

Phone bill for calls to the Department of Motor Vehicles in Sacramento: $5

Ordering a specialty license plate: $40

Promoting the best OS on the planet while behind the wheel: Priceless.

New license plate

I would suggest all GNU/Linux (or Linux — call it what you want) advocates to look into this in your state. When you get down to it, the $40 extra a year comes out to less than $4 a month. Skip a sandwich once a month and you can afford it.

California has seven letters available; some states, like Texas, have six. So whlie I have GNU LNUX in California, California drivers can get LNUX ROX, TUX 1, etc. Be creative. We’ll know what you mean.

See you on the road.

    My plate…NTWK DR

    I saw one on the road….FR33BSD
    Unfortunately, the owner was the victim of a capital crime about a year later. His car (and plate) made the evening news when they found it abandoned just days before his body turned up.
    On a completely sordid note, I guess that means the plate is up for grabs again.

      That’s a good plate, Al.
