I once tried to claim that I invented the term "Heisenbug".
Michael Vance points out that you can find the term in Unix man pages dating back to 1973. I was four at the time.
To that I say: phooey. Somebody has clearly doctored the historical record.
You know what else I invented? Using right-click to get a context sensitive menu. This was in the MindCraft title Gryphon Masters, well before Windows 95. Unfortunately, MindCraft went under before the title could ship.
(Actually, it was very fortunate, for me. Gryphon Masters was going to be a colossal failure on my part - I wanted to compete with Ultima VII even though we had a team of, like, six people, who were splitting their time with other projects as well.)
