Back when *I* first started, we were on this project to build a tower
that would reach the heavens! The work was progressing well, the specs
were all drawn up and all parties signed off on them, the use cases were
ran and all users were identified and their roles assigned. Us tech
writers had completed the construction manuals and were working on the
operating specs when suddenly we could no longer understand each other!
All of our hard work now seemed like Greece (and Abyssinian and
Pheonician and all of the other languages that came about from this
project!) to the entire team, so we hard to start all over again! Talk
about a major re-write!
