/me yearns for the days where Information Engineering was actually a
practised and respected discipline! ERDs, Data Definitions, Data

Clearly defined specs, phases, payment based on the passing of the
predefined unit testing... final payment after documentation is
finished and delivered. Those days are gone forever...
