A Blast From the Past

When Google introduced its experimental indexing service for professional journals, I went hunting for my name and, much to my surprise, found it on a paper published in 2002. huskiebear was good enough to retrieve the PDF file for me and I'm now able to read the paper from Acta Crystallographica on 2-Propyl Mesityl Sulfone where I'm the second author, right after Cal Meyers, the professor at Southern Illinois University whose lab I worked in way back in 1976.

Now that's a surprise!
