We had similar experiences at my last job. We used to have a salesman who did like to sell stuff we didnt have, requiring us the developers to produces it out of thin air. One particular case was the legendary "Currency Converter" The final instant product was a bit of perl and javascript that pinched the currency rates from a less than official exchange rate page that we found. The converter still exists over 4 years later. It used to update the rates automaticaly, but the source site changed their format and it broke. Now it just gets updated when someone remembers.
And what happened to the saleman in question? Well he finished up as sales director of course. :-}
