I just had a similar thing happen to me on Friday - I took a position as a
lone writer 3 months ago with an "entrepreneurial" styled company. 3 weeks
ago I turned in 60 pages of screen shots with lots of "How come we do this"
questions. Friday they stopped development and will spend the next 6 weeks
"polishing" the software based on my suggestions.
