Re: Not in my name, and not with my help.

I think the showing off my work part is a bit over-egged, I can't imagine anyone but another programmer is going to care about my random bits of code online.

Some cancer research sw was originally written by a university on Oracle/SaS, Closed source circa 1990.

The conditions of public funding from the EU for SW dev, requires it to be open sourced. (Public money = public Access).

I got paid to reverse engineer into a C++/Sqlite3 implementation. So I got paid for doing the work, and the public got the fruits of the research. I'm proud of that, especially as it had to be bug compatible with the previous version. Not sure if that's for or against.
