I always though that late projects are everyone's fault. Everyone that're involved in it. Including developers. I don't just blame others. I know it's my fault as well. Hence this question. I would like to improve on my fault to make it better.

Hmmm. I'm not too sure about increased funds since this project was tendered and is for government agency. If funds should be re-evaluated they should go through the whole tender process again since others may be evaluated higher.

Who should I consider boss? The intermediary company that got me this contract that takes 1/4 off my payment? Or the client that I do this product for? Or myself since I run my own company in which I'm the only person employed?

I'm my own boss. I can't hire anyone since I get paid per phases and I knew at the beginning deadlines won't be met so I would be going completely flat if I hired another person. Basically I don't find my job bad at all. I love what I do. I have my own company even though I'm the only person in it. I choose my projects. I'm just having a problem with being fed up with this particular project. It's becoming very very complex and requires a lot of thinking and problem solving at this stage so progress is really low. And since problems are complex I often have to rethink stuff the next day.

What kind of batteries are you using? Mine last for 1.5 to 2 hours tops. Heavy duty notebook. :)

@Job: I don't care about evaluation really. I am the one person company. I'm my own boss, my own employee and my own genitor. :) One size fits all roles kinda person...

I have the benefit of working at home and working outside already while I can't imagine myself on a road bike in speed suit and carying laptop. But it's a nice idea even though.

Enjoyable things? It's so beautifully sunny outside and my bike is yearning for a >60km ride... As well as my legs.

That's a good plan if the end was in sight in the next month. Yet it's somewhere in the next 6-9 months. :( I'll but out few more times yet again.

@sharptooth: I know you're right. Sometimes one thinks of extreme measures when approached with such a stupid upper management. I wouldn't do it myself either. But to convince this boss I might do it in front of him and try to logon to some site. Just for the proof of concept so he would be convinced. But smart person would stop being so stubborn when telling him all these facts. One answer was particularly interesting that talked about selling info.

You could of course log in as the stubborn boss that can't be convinced about security threat and do something overly stupid just to prove him what could happen. Do something that will not hurt business but will act as an example of security and much harder way of tracking who did it. Try to do this from his computer if you can as well. So you can't be tracked down. Or from some admin's machine that thinks the same as that particular boss.
