Pythagorean Tangram

I'm working on a book of Pythagorean theorem proofs to do on The Geometer's
Sketchpad. Awhile back someone posted a nice dissection using tangram-like
pieces. It starts with isosceles right triangles on the legs and goes from
there. I've got the proof in my notes, but I seem to have failed to note who
posted it. Anyone want to claim it so I can give you credit in the book?
