You are not alone.
Hi, my name is fmogavero, and I'm a Perl developer.
I have learned to render unto Caeser what is Caesars. My projects are buried in mounds of paperwork.
Even though my DBConnection object (please don't ask why)is only 81 lines of code, the accompanying paperwork is 81,000 lines of garbage, dated, categorized and "submitted for your approval. (Even though we all know it is much easier to beg for forgiveness than ask for permission)
I read the list of morals and tears of joyous sympathy flowed freely down my cheeks. When are they (business) going to learn that if they want information technology that rocks, they need to listen as well as demand. Where would they be right now if all the computers went on strike? They need to learn about the power outages in California. (And they need to learn how to use a Soroban or Abacus)
You are not alone. I've been there, done that and got the t-shirt too. I am just sorry that it happens to others too.
