Thanks for the answer. I appreciate your idea you gave me. Let's see if I can materialize it.

I'm well aware of the triangle. Loooong time ago I studied MSF deeply. The thing is I needed the work I knew it will be late, and I had no control of any triangle corner. None. Everything was set so I knew it will be partially a death march project. But I am an optimist and I still believe it can be done. With less recompensation but the end product may be delivered.

All parties are aware of invalid deadlines from day one when I took the project. I informed them at the beginning when I took the project. But even I thought it would go faster. Which is not. The product way more complex than initially thought. And it has to be to be useful Otherwise it just won't be.

AD increased productivity: it's true I don't use bug tracking, because there's no systematic testing being done here. End client users are the ones that report bugs. But they are just those that are of very high importance/priority. I try to write as good code as possible to not slip in any stupid bugs and especially not those that get in because things were written in a hurry. I refactor all the time and have very clean code so I find my own code very maintainable (proven on multi dev projects as well).

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.

@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.
