No you can't have enough resources
Now go build it.
Sounds like a major media company I keep reading about.

Effectiveness vs Efficiency...
"…corporations are not reaping huge and ever-increasing profits. They are compensating for a lack of innovation by creating new efficiencies. But every process they throw offshore is another competency removed from their own arsenal. They become management companies, capable of nothing. Then they lose their ‘competitive’ advantage, as well.”
"For every human problem, there is a neat, simple solution; and it is always wrong."
Effective planning marshals appropriate technology to accomplish user goals. (emphasis added)
Well, it's interesting that the metaphor of the death march as a software development process describes a painful chain of events...it parallels the idea of a poorly planned city and the pain that it induces for the citizens who have to wrestle with it every day.

I am code retarded so the video pop up link maker is pretty awesome for me. I have some school projects that I could use this for as well.
What does it do?Works as advertised. Yay the internet!
This is a little wizard that writes the code for you to generate pop-up windows with embedded videos. Paste in your video URL, give it a title, and paste an image URL if you'd like. Then copy and paste the
generated code into your blog entry -- Shazzam!
The code generated will launch a small pop up window with your video embedded. Its still a little experimental, but basically works with most video types that play using Quicktime or Windows Media plugins.
