Quote:
a single person on a project is a liability for the client, because if something happens to this single person the project could suffer major delay or could even get inaccessible altogether.
I was on a project that was immense in scope with lots of DLLs for each of the supporting elements including one that was a built-in language interpreter, network messaging (pre-internet) another to make automated telephone calls, another set of DLLS, each for a different terminal emulation, etc.

Thousands of lines of code with just me, at one point, to support it all! I had probably written a good 50% of it myself.

My boss, the company owner, president, CEO and general tyrant had a $1,000,000 "key employee" insurance on me which I only found out about when the company accountant complained how much it cost after he increased it to $2,000,000 for subsequent years. My code brought in several million dollars to the company so I was safe from being murdered for the insurance for a while at least!
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
