    ATS project development cycle:

    1) Have a great ATS idea
    2) Think about all the money that will be made
    3) Think about how to spend all the imaginary money
    4) Set out to build it
    5) Decide the system isn't as good as initially predicted but still pretty damn good
    6) As it gets closer to completion it seems like less and less of a profitable system
    7) It still seems to have merit and profit potential
    8) In open market it proves to be complete crap
    9) Realize an enormous amount of time was just wasted
    10) Start over again
  2. i can relate..
    some of those steps can be avoided w/ proper system testing i think. (save you tons of time as well)

    but yeah, same boat here.
