23 awesome license plates for computer geeks

We here at Pingdom are computer geeks, and proud of it. None of us have any geeky vanity plates (custom license plates) on our cars, though. But others have, and we love those. This post is a gallery of pictures of some of the coolest vanity plates we have ever seen, collected from around the Web.

Some of the pictures have explanations, but mostly they are pretty self explanatory.

Enjoy! 🙂

This guy googled his own car

Apparently Google did NOT approve and in the end he didn’t get to keep it. (This happened in Sweden, home of Pingdom.)

Someone who’s into graphics

RGBA is the RGB color model (red, green, blue) with added alpha (transparency). It is a common format in the graphics field, used for example in the PNG image format.

Don’t shut down that car

For people not familiar with Windows, Alt-F4 shuts down a program, or Windows itself if no programs are running.
