500%  WOW - when I was contracting - they would have made me marry one
of the owners daughters BY SHOTGUN!!  We're not talking about Cinderella
here - we're talking about the Evil step-sisters now!

Where is this acceptable? PC/WEB projects seem to do this - anyway - I
have people I deliver this stuff to - so when they are late, I'M late...
when I'm late (and possibly loose TONS of revenue) then everything goes
down the tubes.  Here's how it goes - one of my vendors is BIG - so when
they say Jump - I get a pogo-stick.  So when I hire a vendor to do
something, and they miss a deadline, after I promised something to MY
client - there is ENORMOUS potential for problems.

Project estimation shouldn't be THIS much of guesswork - when I'm 10%
late - I feel bad & work my butt off until stuff is done.

FYI - this is PC's...

Nathan,

I'm REAL SURPRISED this point SLIPPED PAST YOUR EAGLE EYE...:

DO THE MATH...!

A project that take 300% longer than the original target date is NOT
EVEN
considered LATE (on non-400 platforms).  In my experience, that point
isn't
approached until the project slips to.. oh... somewhere around 500% past
the
due date.  As you suggested, it depends on the technology the vendor is
using.  The more useless whirly-gigs are supplied, the greater that
percentage generally is.
