Fixed a bug
I worked with another developer on my team to triage and fix an important bug that was impacting the display of revisions and history for posts on Stack Overflow and the Stack Exchange network.

I wrote an explanation of the bugfix here:

Won a t-shirt
I've been very active on the CSTheory and Theoretical Physics stack exchange sites, but only ever answered one question on stack overflow. It's a tongue in cheek answer to the old Google interview question about sorting integers in limited memory. Seems to have proved quite popular over the years. Here it is:

Sorting 1 million 8-decimal-digit numbers with 1MB of RAM

It also won me a t-shirt.
