I'm a bit of an amature programmer.
I got hired once to make a CD to go in the back of a book on kabbalah
and numerology in the analysis of names.
Prior to this "job" I knew nothing about the details or inner workings of the system.
The Author sent me a copy of his manuscript,
I read it in one sleepless night, crashed,
and woke up to write the program.
It was pretty easy, as I've always been into math riddles.
When I got paid I told the author, "yeah It was pretty easy,
I used to play D&D and this is just another magic system."
I also included some recursive, effects as the Authors' system
runs three layers of analysis on the system.
Anyway... all the results and language credit are from his book,
A life time of work went into it,
but he had never had a digital version of his system before
and I could tell by his sample results in the book that his math was inconsistant
and it could take hours for him to do the analysis by hand.
A week later, I guess after he had had some time to try out the program,
I got a freaked out e-mail from him saying "how did you do that!?" and "Send me the source code."
So I did.
Never heard from him sense, but I think I blew his mind.
$20 well earned if you ask me.
