Japanese Linux Hacker by sime Japanese Linux Hacker by sime
Inspired by HackerStickers.com Hacker (Japanese) ハッカー Sticker. Personally I'm fascinated with Japanese script, even though I don't understand a bit of it.

Using a Linux desktop I called upon The GIMP along with the Script-Fu Chrome extension for the Japanese script. I wrote a brief python script to generate the binary numbers on the background in an attempt to make randomisation look authentic. The tux image is essentially a slightly adjusted version of Larry Ewing's original work (Linux 2.0 Penguins).

Looks really cool!
However the tsu(second character) should be smaller. Right now it says hatsukaa, with the tsu smaller I'd be hakkaa, the real pronunciation.

ハツカー (hatsukaa)
ハッカー (hakkaa)

You mean the font? I just used a character map, as it's supported under Linux.

Re-reading my initial comments, I think you mean the Chrome extension I mentioned.

It has been available in The GIMP for many versions. Xtns > Logos > Chrome. In text field I pasted the Japanese script and hit OK.

Actually the way they spell that out used the katakana characters ha, small tsu (to give the next character a double consonant), ka, and a long vowel bar. So the romajinized version would be hakkaa.

In Japanese all of the characters in the 2 kana alphabets just represent noises that are strung together to spell words.

The characters say: Ha Shi Ka~
Since it's written in Katakana you can safely assume it's an english word, but i can't seem to figure it out though. sorry.
