Theory begins by denying reality - to talk about reality, to go around reality, to catch anything that attracts our sense - intellect and abstract it away from reality itself.

Begginning with saying that the outside world is not a fact, that existence can be doubted and that every proposition in which reality of the outside world is affirmed is not an evident proposition but one that needs to be divided, dissected, and analysed.
It is to stand consciously aside and try to square a circle.

Projects fail on expectations and bad criteria. Everyone gets them mixed up and start talking about who's methodoligies are better.

Perhaps, one day, after one has delivered a project where, for example:

a) Scope and functionality is to be reduced to fit the deadline
b) Performance is not an issue
c) Content accuracy and reliability is expected to be wrong at least 6 months after deadline

That is when one should start discussing achievability, business projections and the stock market.

Like an ancient buddhist monk, you should transcend all your teachings and simply deliver the solution. Everything before it and after if is the journey of your life.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
