I've been a professor of mathematics at The University of North Carolina - Asheville since 1997. I've been using Mathematica since I started graduate school in mathematics at Ohio State in 1989. At that time, we used version 1.1 (as I recall) to teach calculus in our Calculus and Mathematica classes. I've used it pretty much continuously in my teaching and research since then.

In addition to my posts on SE, you can find some of my papers, teaching notebooks and other Mathematica based oddities strewn throughout my website.

In recent years, I've also worked as a part-time consultant to Wolfram Research focusing on development of mathematical content for WolframAlpha.

@Kuba Neat! I never noticed a function that actually declares itself as undocumented in its name before. I'm curious - how did you avoid the problem that I had with the misbehaving invisible characters after copy/paste? It looks like you used 4 space indentation; maybe that's it? My code was inline.

Sadly, the Import code I just wrote doesn't seem to survive a copy from the comment box. Hopefully, you get the idea.

@Kuba But then, you wouldn't have the joy of writing code to extract the code. :) code=StringJoin[Cases[First[Cases[Import["http://mathematica.stackexchange.com/‌​questions/75936/ghost-trails-with-animate","XMLObject"], XMLElement["td", {_, _, "class" -> "answercell"}, ___],Infinity]],XMLElement["pre", {}, {XMLElement["code", _, {code_}]}] :> code, Infinity]]
