in reply to Project Management

Of the development methodologies I used (or more often than , been forced to use:), and there have been many some less elaborate and some more so, the only one I could recommend is XP.

Don't let the name that sounds like a late '90s "No fear" recreational pastime put you off, its the only one I've used where the project doesn't become secondary to the methodology. That is to say, the practices involved rapidly become second nature and something you don't want to bypass, because the benefits are rapidly apparent to (almost) everyone that uses it. It's the easiest to learn, most intuative to maintain, and it works.

Unlike most of the others where the project management is percieved as a chore that only gets done when management nags you to do it, and for which any excuse is a reason to avoid, delay or abandon it. Or, as with things like UML (Rational Rose etc.), becomes a whole skill-set to be learned and an art in itself. You end up needing a project management and design team to manage the project management project:(

[Marshall]: stevieb wish you well with water problems, my water was off all day Monday for repairs. Any more progress on .exe info problem?.
[stevieb]: Marshall: no. I commented on the thread yesterday. Visual Studio updates the tags ok, but corrupts the exe
[stevieb]: I advised the OP that a possible workaround would be to add a version function/flag that displays the required copyright/license info instead
[Marshall]: Darn! I'll look at the thread. Must not be updatinga byte count somewhere. The .exe format is a complex critter.
[stevieb]: that way, it's still "hard coded" into the exe at least, despite not being visible via Properties
[Marshall]: I also looked into PerlApp from Active State, but they don't sell their Dev Kit independent of a very expensive ($1,200) per year license anymore.
