Oh gawd, are IT still implementing the Big Black Book?

Ollie White pointed out the project-killing results of that over forty years ago.

I once turned down a very lucrative contract, pissing off my agent no end and dooming myself to months of unemployment, because the client, when asked, proudly claimed that the time to review "non-standard deviations from written protocols" was after the BBB version was live.

I just couldn't bear the thought of my name being on the first version, and becoming a curse word for all who came after.
