How do I wish my programming-geek boyfriend "Happy Birthday" and tell him "I love you" using computing code?

My boyfriend's birthday is coming up and I'd like to get him something that would amuse him. We're both geeks, and he loves programming, so I thought I'd get him a message in code. Thing is, I don't program, so I have no idea what and how to code. I remember a website that did "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall" in as many coding languages as possible, so I'm looking for the romance variant.
* Takes his birthday (Feb 10th 1987) and prints out his age, or does something cool with it
* Tells him "I Love You" and/or "Happy Birthday"
This code will most likely be printed on a card, so it doesn't have to be part of a functioning program. The idea is that he'll work out the message by reading and parsing the code - "Roses are #FF0000, Violets are #0000FF, chown -R you ~/base" worked really well and I'm looking for something like that. Something sexy works too, hahah!
Google isn't helping me, though it's possibly because I don't know what to search for.
any other geeky+romantic+sexy code/pictures/links/comics/ideas etc to share with my boyfriend would be much appreciated too! Thank you!
