New Distribution?

Can anyone point me to a good, comprehensive list of discrete probability distributions? I was working on a hobby problem a while back, and I think I came up with a new one. I ran it by one of my old probability theory teachers, who said that he thought he had seen something like it, but couldn't remember where.

If I can't find it anywhere, should I write a short paper on it? How else could I find out if 'my' distribution has already been worked on before?

Why don't you give us the distribution? I don't think people will care if you found a new distribution unless you have a good reason for them to care about. I doubt writing a paper would be a good idea in that case.
