Me? Not credits. Maybe you meant somebody else, though? ('Cause I'm not sure what you meant...)

I meant have you worked on anything that's been produced yet?

I believe so. I've been working with the company for about two years. I've helped code patches and features for releases spanning at least 2.2 of our release to our recent 3.2 ; also, I did a lot of work in helping get our new product hardware working.

If you go to this part of our company web site:

http://www.uplogix.com/products/envoy_nrm_overview.php

You can see what our latest hardware looks like. Parts of it that I can directly claim I worked on / made function:

-The LCD in the front (I wrote the driver to use it).

-The keypad (part of the LCD, actually).

-I heavily modified our app's code to support the two "option card" modules you can see on the front of the unit.

-In the back, there's a place where you can attach Dallas Semiconductor 1-Wire devices. Although I didn't write the code from scratch, I've had to fix numerous bugs in the Dallas Semiconductor provided code as well as add support for some devices that weren't previously available. I also had to tie that code into our app.

-In addition, I've worked on patching Linux USB, serial, and ethernet drivers in order to fix small bugs that we've found. (Most of which should now already be a part of the main Linux kernel, I think.)



For actual features, I don't know what I can really talk about. All I can point out is which components physically on the device I had a hand in working on.

It is. It'd be an even bigger threat if we could get the Linux USB laser drivers working. I am a bit worried, though. I was diagnosing one the other day and it asked me where Sarah Connor was...

I'm sure it was just a burp in the system.
