    Pretty much finished a large integration project, just the mop-up now.

    What was your biggest thing you done that when you got 1/2 way through you thought "Why the fuck did I take the lead on this"?

    /cracks open the booze, "Never again" I say, again.

    PhD. Which I, um, took the lead on. There were days I wished I worked stacking shelves in a supermarket.

    /Wants everyone to know that after admin cockups he is finally, officially, a doctor.

    Responsible* for project managing the install of all the technology for setting up a newspaper ( Kent on Sunday )

    From internet to computers to network to QPS and add sales software installation and integration.

    Fortunately I shared the project management with a mate.... I was Design / Logistics..... he was Software / Hardware and we tended to do a lot of our catching up in the pub.

    Despite integrators stropping, hardware people lying, a software company going bust, flying in specialists from the US it was delivered ready on time and on budget.

    Such a blag as we'd never touched half the stuff we'd quoted before the project.

    PhD, Job change, buying and furnishing a home, learning a language. All things that I put an enormous amount of personal resources into only to find I was slightly past the half way mark.

    Even this post. I realised about half way through that this is probably all irrelevant, but I was too far gone to turn back. :)

    I have often wondered if it wouldn't be easier to do something like that. But then again, when I see my paycheck, I'm glad I didn't.

    Charlotte Mace. She was BIG! It took an age to get her bra undone. Even longer to get her out of her dress which was incidentally 3 sizes too small for her tank sized frame. When I eventually managed to see her in all that naked gloriousness - womble nosed tits, three spare tyres for a midriff and a bush that Alan Titsmarsh would be proud of - I thought.....WHY?

    Have a system that I've been working on for 2 years now... just keeps evolving and it's going to give me a nervous breakdown if it doesn't end soon. \o/

    Single developer on an eCommerce solution for a prestigous brand name. Still not there yet - but I'm in that nice 'sweeping up the dregs' period knowing that the core product is pretty much there now.

    Argh, don't start about eCommerce! Had a project in osCommerce a while back. os coders are without a doubt the worst bunch of no good lazy, sloppy amateuristic coders on the face of the planet.

    EDIT: At the end of the project I felt like getting a gun and shooting them all.
