That made me laugh :w00t:.. A good way to start a day, and yes, it's a great analogy for a project.. Especially the part about chasing turds.. Don't expect me to get excited over a project when I know the end users will spend their time on the end result chasing turds down a pipe! Excellent!
Definitely a good chuckle and it also strikes me that while I have a great plan to use a nice process to correctly identify data needed to complete a change, someone always gets distracted and sends the plan down the drain.;)
