Cooking a crab!

There's an ole' tale about how you cook a crab by putting them in cold water and heating it up a little at a time until they're ready to they don't know what's happening. Well, for all my experience in IT, managing projects, etc. - I'm finding myself confirming that theory and being near well cooked. It all started on a cool sunny morning when I was asked to provide a quick small request, something that should take no more then 2-3 hours for a large client. Well, one month later and a lot of heating up - the small request has become a good size project about 1/4 of the way complete. Just a warning to all you potential cooked crabs out there - if you're in water that's seems to be getting a little warm - well it's time to see if you're in a pot or not.
