It took me a while to figure out that you had to click on the link:D

I wonder if Google.com will get down your neck for copyright breeches... Cool nonetheless.

Good thing you aren't selling them, then I would have to be a fascist.

Does anyone know someone that prints t-shirts? I want to make some geek ones. Could do with a PressF1 shirt for a start. Some of the thinkgeek.com stuff is very cool.

They do them in all the malls... well, all the ones I know of in Auckland anyway... I'm assuming you guys are in Auckland? St Lukes have two places, 277 Broadway have one as well... whereabouts are you, Robo?

Lo.

Could always try do them yourself using the HP iron-on transfer paper from HP and a good inkjet printer

St Lukes is my home-mall. I suppose I should check them out. Unique t-shirts are way cool because you can't meet any clones. I might just give it a go.

St Lukes, WestCity... There's a few independantly owned ones... You in Aucks now Robo?

Theres a good one somewhere just off Lincoln Road IIRC.

There's a lot of cool g33k shirts, like:
There's no place like 127.0.0.1
Wherever you go, there 127.0.0.1 shall always be
mount -t brain -o rw /dev/brain /body/head

And there's some other crazy ones people come up with too ;-)

is there a place in the best city in the world, Christchurch?

I have (boringly) always resided in fair Auckland. I just visit hyperspace for tax purposes.

There are some very good ones out there, but good luck getting something that doesn't say "USA" or "Dickies" on it by the look of the people walking around the streets.

I have a somewhat suspect pix of a T Shirt of the Blue Screen of Death. I am sure it gives a whole knew meaning to "Press any key to continue" given that it (the T) is clothing a rather spectacular set of contour lines (is that OK for a family website?).

I am sure I picked it up (the pix) here some time ago. I don't have a website to host it on, and don't know the copyright owner, so I can't show it to you here :8}

That is a relief! I don't want to be banned!

The pix I have is actually a cropped (and therefore much more family friendly) version of one of the pix on the site you have posted gf. If you go to the following page, and look at the right hand picture, you will go blind:

No, seriously, my pix just shows the T shirt with the rest of the model cropped out...

Merivale Mall, upstairs on first floor. Can't remember the name of it but it's in the corner. $16 for up to an A4 sized print on your supplied teeshirt so make sure your pic fills the A4 page. :D

Note that white teeshirts are best as it matches the background of the transfer. Black ones don't really have the same effect unfortunatly as the transfer is quite visible when ironed onto the teeshirt. :-(

They do have a great range of T-shirts at thinkgeek.com. The quality is pretty good as well.

I got myself a couple of T-shirts a while ago which are rather cool - this (http://www.thinkgeek.com/tshirts/ladies/38f0/) and this one (http://www.thinkgeek.com/tshirts/ladies/57eb/) :D

Only trouble is, you have to explain them to the non-geeks :p

robo

I would never explain them to non-geeks. If they don't get it, they won't get it. Mind you, not sure I would get Q T in binary very quickly. More likely to get slapped for staring at someone's chest for too long (by my wife). That means the shirt should come with a health warning.

Specially that one with the BSOD... There's a fair few variants out there... The girls differ wearing them.. Doesnt quite work for the guys IMO ;-)

Some are just not meant to be explained to geeks...
I saw one that configured iptables on the shirt, to filter all gossip and swear words etc

And the "no place like 127.0.0.1" is not something Im gonna wanna explain to people :-P

I like that /usr/bin/girl

Here's another candidate if we're going down that path
cat /sbin/abs

;-)


Chill.
