Now I've had time to think about it, I have to admit it's a bit of both. If I'm honest, I think I'm just a bit jealous - I would have loved to work on a project like that. Even though there are some solid facts I could point out as 'not ideal', I think the reason for pointing them out in the first place was most likely due to that jealously, and maybe, subconsciously, I'm secretly hoping that management will turn around and say 'Yes, you're right. This whole thing won't work. Let's scrap it, and we'll give it to you to do properly. Now, go forth, and make us proud. And have a raise while you're at it. And your own office. And a title.' Hmm...maybe not!
Love it! I'm over 50 years old and I STILL cannot get over how life is unfair. But, then, sometimes I realize if life was, indeed, fair I'd probably be worse off than I am.
The personal traits that make for great coders (being tacky, I'd call it perfectionism) can also create serious problems in the work-a-day world.
Example of how this can go on and on:
