Default Re: The can't-pause-a-diavlog-for-a-long-time-without-losing-your-place BUG

Done enough SW to know the story -

Get systems engineering to revise user interface spec.
Hold spec review and get approval from all stakeholders.
Work up detailed schedule and budget for changes.
Go through management approval cycle.
Rework schedule and budget per management direction.
Repeat approval cycle.
Call in vendors to demonstrate the latest development tools.
Perform trade study.
Generate SW development plan.
Approval cycle for plan.
Get purchase order through for tools and licenses.
Pick SW team.
Work up detailed milestones and metrics to track project.
Hold refresher training for SW team on SW practices and standards and use of new tools.
Ethics training all around.
Bring SW folks, management, quality assurance, systems, and marketing together for team building exercises.
Hold one-on-ones with everyone to clarify expectations and set performance goals.
Hold project kick-off.

At this meeting somebody points out that the whole project was previously done in a programming language that is no longer in vogue and the whole thing needs to be rewritten in the latest flavor of the month to be commercially viable. Management insists there is no budget for that. In successful projects, right about then somebody finds a freeware viewer on a website dedicated to pirating videos, and the whole thing is moot.
