But how many projects have you worked on where the spec evolves towards infinity without a stop? What happens to such projects?
That sounds like $WORK. Being an agile company in a highly volatile market means our specs change every day, following consumer demand. Code that was written a year ago, is thrown away today because it's no longer relevant.

Oh, and we have a yearly revenue that needs 10 digits before the decimal period, when expressed in US dollars.
