How good is this uber geeky cushion with DOS coding sewing onto it? I love the detailing of the small embroidery (I think it is Courier font) and the actual coding on the cushion itself with text strings such as antique, friends and doors. It is so much better than the Google cushions (see below).
This kind of cross stitch reminds me of stitched receipts which also totally rock my world.
Implications - This is also the kind of shirt that serves as a secret, non-verbal nod for people in the coding community. It's like a secret handshake without having to talk to strangers. As underground as the coding subculture is, it'll likely be a conversation starter.
