Hay fever is kicking my ass today. I didn't sleep well last night, and today my nose is constantly running. And my thighs ache, I think from riding the bike. Tonight is walkies night, but if I still feel like crap when I get home, I may skip it.

Dreamt last night that I was doing commando raids on the industrial park where I work. Only I had no weapons, and there was no team, and I was on the railroad tracks.


New schedule came in today. I am booked now into mid-June of '05. Part of that includes double-booking from mid-January to mid-March, and I still don't have the okay to get paid beyond December.


Having requirements squabbles again. We are at the point of having to implement a lot of user-interface stuff, and it's taking a whopping lot of time because the initial requirement work was not done.
Now we are making implementations based on requirements, and some features are not being included that are being expected. And I am being forced to be a hard-ass and say that if you didn't bother to write it down, you don't get the functionality. I don't want to do that, but I am getting deadline pressure and some other design decisions have forced the issue.
I'm just not willing to be the crunch boy on this one.

Who told you about Crunch Boy? How much do you know?

Mentioning him in a public forum like this - you've got guts, I can tell you that. I just hope you can deal with the ramifications.

Always an ugly conversation. However, if the timeline isn't going to change, the functionality must. Whee, triple-constraints!

Hey, did that test plan I sent you have any use for you?
