Furcodes aren't as common now as they used to be, but they are widely used among furries.  It's inspired by the Geek Code, and was originally meant for use in signatures on BBSes and Usenet newsgroups.

There's a wizard to create and decode furcodes here, and a full article about furcodes by the concept's creator can be found here.  And yes, there are people who can decode furcodes without the wizard, though they're extremely rare anymore :-)

It's kind of dated anyway. I mean, seriously... doom? I think someone needs to design a better version that actually makes sense in this age.

I dont know anyone who'd want to, the things are huge. I only keep track of mine because it gives me something to do, and I guess it might be helpful on super-delux rare situations.
