I've got a mix of old projects needing new features and new projects that my customers keeping coming up with. I keep having nightmares where a line of end users are waiting in front of my desk, when another comes in and breaks line to ask for another report or program tweak...a fight breaks out and I find myself paralyzed...then I wake up! Confused | :confused:

It's the new stuff that seems to take forever, mostly because there's no roadmap...unlike the rest of you, the only project specs I've ever gotten were handwritten on scratch paper or bar napkins...if I'm lucky, there might be a drawing! Laugh | :laugh:

Personally, I'd rather add features/fix bugs in existing projects than work on new stuff.

When asked, I always give multiply a reasonable time estimate by 3.
