Watch The Wallabies Feed, Mate....
The project managers are sufficiently useless today as well. We've got one who reminds me of Lou Costello, both in stature and effectiveness. He's been an astonishingly poor PM all the way through this project (but I must say he's not a bad person), and only knows his metrics. I don't think these guys could define a real milestone (as opposed to a method-mandated one) if his <insert something mission-critical or euphemism for buttocks> depended on it.
One joke I'm notorious for telling is somewhat applicable here in modified form - "What's the difference between an IT project and a buzzard?" "The buzzard waits until you're dead to eat your heart out".
Late posting tomorrow, as I will be banging out stuff at the client site, otherwise known as Camp Runamuck, where the sign on the door says "Anderer Tag der Freude durch Arbeit".
