You had me hooked the moment I saw the word "Gallifreyan" in the title. Big fan of Tennant, Smith, Capaldi and the whole Whovian universe. I've bookmarked the article, will read it a bit later.

Project time estimation reminds me of weeping angels; the more you look at them, the closer you get to that moment of imminent doom. The same analogy could be applied to coding; the more time you spend looking clueless and hoping the code will somehow materialize itself, the closer you get to getting zapped back to the unemployment line 😄.

I just had this thought bouncing around in my head and had to let it out in a form of this comment.

The reality is different of course, if people got fired for missing the deadlines, there wouldn't be any developers left. Maybe procrastination is the main character trait of every developer 😄
