This was a job for a private company, and my code is in many aircraft
flying in the sky right now.

But I once did do a job for a company that was under contract to one
of the branches of the military, and we did spend $100s of millions of
the tax payers money to build a really cool inertial reference unit -
unfortunately, we only built one, and then they didn't want it any
more. I think I produced more power point slides then I did lines of
code :-(
