An old chestnut, but still very funny and not always far from the truth.

  • How the customer explained it.
  • How the project manager understood it.
  • How the analyst designed it.
  • How the programmer wrote it.
  • What the testers received.
  • How the business consultant described it.
  • How the project was documented.
  • What operations installed.
  • How the customer was billed.
  • How it was supported.
  • What the customer really needed.
  • The disaster recovery plan.
...and speaking of Disaster Recovery, do people really test their solutions properly?
