7,333,971

No, it's not the number of training miles I ran this month... Actually, it is a bit off-topic, but I am really excited about this: my patent 7,333,971 was finally issued today! Believe it or not, the company I work for filed the application in 2002.

This is a patent for an automated helpset build system (a tool that can help technical writers speed up their work on online help by automating a bunch of manual tasks). This is the second patent that was issued out of four applications that I filed. The other two are still patent-pending.

That's fantastic! I know those patents can take a long time, but there's nothing quite like knowing you've put an intellectual stake in the ground. Print and frame that puppy!

Congrats! Yet another ultrarunner with some brains to boot. That algorithm chart thing makes no sense to me, but I'm sure, luckily that is not necessary for the thing to work.
