comment Failed Project: When to call it?
It depends on your company: many consider 25% (or more) over budget, 25% (or more) late, or 25% (or more) cut features to be failures.

comment The most mind-bending programming language?
And if it wasn't already mind-bending enough, there were some operators that required using the backspace/overstrike key. For example, matrix inverse was the square box (over the L key) overstruck with a divide sign (the one next to the backarrow key in the upper right corner of the keyboard image).

comment The most mind-bending programming language?
Jess is a modern version of CLIPS which was also embeddable as a sort of scripting/logic engine for your own applications.

comment What actions to take when people leave the team?
Having just left a long term position (5 years) on Dec31, my previous employer did just about the opposite of all the advice here. The primary focus my boss wanted me to complete was a deliverable with no "brain dump" nor documentation.

comment Aggressive Auto-Updating?
@MattiasK, BITS is built into every version of Windows that .NET supports. It also handles edge cases (such as the user deciding to suddenly shut down windows during updates) quite well. Our apps handled government forms, and were not suitable for running from removable media (most of our corporate customers have USB ports locked down to prevent inserting USB drives).
