What happens if I publish sucha paper (or a very similar one) to a
different magazine? In particular, what happens if my original
publication happens before the original author's?

There is. But that can be changed if enough PCCC members think that it
should be changed. There are at least three PCCC members on this list
(last time I checked, anyway), so please tell us
- what's the problem with problems being considered published once they
have appeared on a WWW site or in a newsgroup or mailing list (or
should these media be handled differently?)?
- what other definition of "publication" than "bringing to the
knowledge of the public" (such as the audience of a mailing list) is /
should be used in your opinion?
