DEADlines!!

We were all having a discussion on the project time line yesterday afternoon. The project team want us to finish faster, we, the developer hope to gain more time to do the work. So after the discussion, we all decided that both parties will step a step backward and agreed to the time line that is reasonable (actually it's NOT really reasonable, but ~sigh, what to do..).

So you think that's the end? No, it's NOT. Later that afternoon, i got a call from the project team and they said the client was not free for the walk thru on that particular date we've decided. So what does that suppose to mean? We have to push it earlier! Earlier? How many days earlier? 11 days earlier!!

so there comes again, discussions, arguments, fights, hehe, no fights lar, maybe some cursing.. Anyway, the top management wants to be fair for both parties and decided that we're going to push the deadlines 7 days earlier!!

Does this sounds fair? Well, seriously, i don't really think it's that fair. It's like no matter wat, the developers are the one that suffer!! So you know why it's called deadline? cos by then we're all DEAD!!
