Well, not exactly accurate when you consider that I'm a female gamer who is currently looking into rebuilding her PC. Plus I was on other sites today that this algorithm did not pick up, like newegg.

Oh well, I'm secure in my feminimity. :-)

I wonder if it guesses your a chick when you know that your a man if that means that you have a predisposition to homosexuality or if it's just plain wrong?

I ran Ccleaner befor running this and this is the result.

I wonder what it would come up with if I visited porn and liberal websites. Perhaps visit Obama's site and then run the Algorithm. I'll be back

No difference. It says that it uses the male/female ratios from the top 10k websites. I guess my top 10k porn sites are not counted as the numbers did'nt change and neither did they change after visiting liberal websites and Obamas website.

I don't need to run the script, the picture Paul put with this article sums up the gender divide in this household perfectly lol.  My wife laughed as hard as I did when I showed it to her.

Our computer room is often filled with the lilting melodies of Diner Dash 27, peppered with cries of "Tango down!" ;)

This is on my work PC... I'll attempt it on my home PCs to how it turns out. Not sure about the script since

I'm definitely a 100% male geek.

Nogoodname

it's just that at lot more women then men like to cook. Although to be fair most famous chefs are male (at least in the books that I read, don't know about the real world since i don't eat at restaurants. That is because i'm 15 and my mom makes very good food).

 When I rans it at work, on a work PC, the results where this:

 

Likelihood of you being FEMALE is 50%

Likelihood of you being MALE is 50%

 

 The majority of people I work with are male...

Had your cache/history been cleared recently, or perhaps automatically at work whenever you close the browser?  If there's no history, it will spit out a 50/50 probabilty, which I suppose one could argue is inaccurate if factoring in the number of male vs female computer users.

Likelihood of you being FEMALE is 2%

Likelihood of you being MALE is 98%

Spot on, though I'm not sure how it works.  The list of sites and the ratio numbers are just gibberish to me.
