Did you write the famous hangman Java applet?

I also get asked this question from time to time. Unfortunately, I can’t take credit for that great little game (and one of Sun’s original sample applets for Java 1.0) because Patrick Chan wrote it.

However, the reason my name is in the source is because I ported it from Java 1.0 to Java 1.1 while interning at Sun in 1997.
