Well, not published in the usual way, but some computer stuff I did is not published. A while back this happened for the first time when I wrote a program for the apache group’s fop (pdf generation) program and just to see something that I have done being used in a public way is pretty cool to me.
I talk to M sometimes about competence and having proper contexts to be able to judge competence. Both he and I are good at what we do, about as good as anyone else we know, but what would things be like if we were not at Tennessee Tech university? The EE department is better developed than CSC and so M can sit more assured in his accomplishemnts, I think. My program though is slowly dying it seems and it never was especially robust in the first place. =)
