Yet another cutting edge, value adding software project cut because the stock market went down.
The manager who told me in 2001 that any project that takes over 4 months to be complete is a failure, has been proven right in my career more often than he's been proven wrong. 2 quarters, that's all you ever get to show success anymore.
Oh well. This one was good resume fodder for next time. But I'm glad I never got around to buying my own whiteboard pens.
