    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!

    I notice that Jodrell offers a 3D simulation of a trip to Mars - maybe the first project wasn't so impossible afterall?

    But then, it is always after the project that another developer rocks up and offers an off the shelf package that they reckon would do the same job for less effort and cost...

    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.;)

    Excellent! While I am now in the USA, I went to Manchester University, so the mention of Jodrell Bank got my attention right away.

    its only 35 miles from me so wondering whether my six year old would enjoy or feel like the deliverable didnt match up to his visions/expectations of x-wings and deathstars flying around etc
