Youl could have just posted a picture of the plate. Was a picture of the car and roadside really needed?

That is a really beautiful road. I hope you aren't one of those sports car enthusiasts who insists on trying to drive it James Bond style. It's much better appreciated at 20mph with the top down on a sunny winters day. <p/>Nice plate BTW!

Well..it's all I had. :/ Next time I'll crop it I guess. All the the close up pics made the lettering invisible due to the camera flash bouncing off the plate.

Mike, the maximum I can do on this road is 2nd gear and even that in lower RPMs. This road turns into a 1-lane road with light traffic going both ways and of course there are some blind turns thrown in. There are also some pro-am cyclist types who somehow get all the way up here, pretty amazing folks. I drive \*very\* carefully on this road. :) Anyways, here is a pic of the same location, same time, but looking to the left: http://www.unixville.com/~moazam/myArchive/Niles.jpg

There was a guy here in Javasoft with a license plate that said "COMPILE" plus there's always "VMUNIX" :)

Awesome plate and great place to take the photo. I used to live in Niles, it's a great area, but that road back there is perfect. Too high traffic during the day to be serious fun, but at night it's a blast. And, you probly already know that you can go ALLLLLLLLLL the way back around Mission Peak and come out around Milpitas if you just stay on that road. I'm buying a Volvo S70 T5 this week and can't wait to get it out there! I love your 911. :)

Ah.. Now I recognise where it is. This is great biking, nothing like sweating your bum off getting up there, then riding with the cars on the way down.

So is UNIXVIL like E-VIL? A friend of mine who once worked for Cray Resarch had the plate: CRAYON My own, RCHRD, which is by now my brand, derives from the days when you had to assign a job name to to batch programs you submitted thru the card reader at the Lawrence Berkeley Labs CDC 7600 center. It had to be 5 letters. Your paper output listings would be sorted by that job name, which appeared on the first card in the JCL deck. I discovered that removing the vowels from my first name resulted in 5 letters. One day I was crossing the Bay Bridge behind a pickup truck with the plate ORCHRD, and trees in the bed.

O'Richard, it's UNIXVIL as in Unixville, as in unixville.com. :P Somewhat of a longshot, but closest I could get.
