Blogging about technology and randomness since 2002

DMOZ Signature code

You’ve seen the Blogger Code, the Geek Code, and all of the other codes, but how about the ODP code? Yep, we have one now, and here’s mine:
<ODP ver=”1.0″ code=” E++ F++++ D+++ X* N++ G Q++ Lo A+ H+ W- O+ B T+++ I—“>
I’ll let you decide what it means until someone writes a decoder. And yes, I imagine it is XML-compatible.
Oh yeah, and I’ve updated my Blogger Code too, since I’ve been blogging for more than a year now.


  1. I’m surprised at you, Neil… I thought that by now you’d have included a link to my ODP Sig Code Decoder ( ) by now…
    Not to worry, I’ve done it for you. 🙂

  2. Oh dear, how embarrassing – this was my idea and I didn’t even know about it! 🙁
