Hahaha!! Oh my, I was laughing real hard when I read this!! I don't
"sneak" my name in -- I'm blatantly sticking it in everywhere I need
a name for an example!! Which is quite often since, with reference
management programs, you need author names (egads! did I say
"author"?) quite often! I also use the programmer's names, when I
need more than one name.

Sneak... hahaha, giggle!!

Oh, BTW, we do include the programmers' names, and my name, in the
"About" dialogs. Funny thing, though -- we don't specify what the
people are responsible for. Our names are just listed in plain old
alpha order.

Still giggling,
