comment Which comments instantly ring alarm bells when a programmer says them?
Here is an interesting article from Joel. Now, rewriting from scratch did seem to work for Firefox eh? But in general, this is a good rule: joelonsoftware.com/articles/fog0000000069.html

@Lavinski, yes, my code could definitely use a rewrite from scratch! Lot of cruft in there. But don't we always want to rewrite?

@Pierre - we're actually pondering that right now.

@Pierre - we've tried this with the client - not something they'll accept. Perhaps it works on some clients, but I think you have to go about it politely, using #2.

comment How do you handle changes in client focus?
This isn't quite what's happening. We'll quote feature A and begin work on it. Concurrently, we'll quote feature B, which they'll all of a sudden decide they want implemented before feature A, which we already started. Feature A now takes more time to complete due to merging / inertia.

comment What tools do you use to manage requests from users?
We use this and are looking for an alternative. I find the client facing portion nearly worthless (sending an email into the void) unless you want to shell out a bunch of cash for licenses.
