I should call myself a games programmer now. Not only is my code in Quake (2? 3?), but also in the PS1 Square Bob Pants game, too.

I had nothing to do with either game. They both lifted my code from published sources.

I don't even play games, except the occasional Sudoku or similar.

@jonne The Linux kernel snprintf and a base64 encoder/decoder I once wrote.

@liw How do you know where your code has been used? The license doesn't require informing you, does it?

@jonne Quake code was published. The PS1 game and its suspected GPL violation was in the tech news last week, and they explicitly found my code.
