    Not "mine", at least, but Jargon File is only the third of 4 (or fourth
    of 5 counting webster as double, due to different versions) of the
    listed definitions in the url I supplied.

    However, using 'own', which is a similar word (according to Webster's
    entries), you say the same thing without the secondary prejudicial
    meanings of proprietary.
