Since September, there have been two features that the Veep has been trying to squeeze into our product release, even though they've never been put on the schedule because we don't have the time to do them. Every now and then, Veep just comes around and talks just enough about those two extra features to scare the crap out of us.
Today, he sent an e-mail saying that they've officially decided one of the two isn't needed for our first release. Unfortunately, it's the simpler of the two that they've decided we can officially punt on.
How lucky. We have 3 months to go, a feature that touches every single bit of code we have written & will write, and no one working on it... yet we need it for the first release, even though we don't have the time to do it.
CALGON, TAKE ME AWAY!
