Perhaps it is 13 lines long, but as a former experience-ee (word?) of
this exact situation with SharePoint, I would also have written a
13-line sentence of rantings. :-)

I posted off-list earlier describing many of the exact problems I
faced, but to sum up...

SharePoint was a nightmare. Not because of the system (SharePoint's
actually pretty cool), but my company assumed *I* could handle it
alone and just absorb it into my duties. And indeed, I began looking
for a new job soon after. By the time I left, SharePoint was so abused
and disorganized that the quest for a *new* solution was immediately

Without providing for the internal structure, any project is doomed to
fail. It's simple math. If you work 40 hours a week on Project A, you
cannot add X hours from Project B and still get 40 hours a week. You
have to compensate somewhere.

So, Gene my friend, please rant on. I even gave you a full-throated
"Hallelujah" and an "Amen" at the end!
