For the tech geeks

I came across this today – an “Ubuntu Certificate of Authenticity“. While not actually required (or real) it’s a nice and clever idea – especially when you read how the barcode and key were made,

The barcode matches the value of the key, which is the HEX value of “GNU/LINUX”, but I had to add ’01’ to the end of the key for the number of figures to balance out.

Then came Digg and the inevitable mod in salute of pirates everywhere…

Arrr Me Mateys! 😀 (see Wikipedia)
