now i can really find who is using my code


google just released google code search, which is a search engine that just searches for things inside source code. practically zero used for non-geeks.

but now i can really find out what other projects use my code, starting from:

EyeTunes:

Menuet (i know about this one)
bezelTunes (i had no idea)
TotalDistance (what is this?)

ok, not that impressive, i actually privately know more by just otool'ing binaries when i'm bored. interesting that it knows my code is BSD licensed!

PlotKit:

well, not many here, but what the hell, the first entry clearly says "For use under the BSD license" but google labels it LGPL.

What if I do a vanity search, I wonder how many times I'm mentioned?

well, turns out my name is for some reason on evolution's source code. and discovering patches i made in 2002! and i can't even remember when i did this to efsd, but note to anil, see, i remember Christian from somewhere!

oh what fun.
