No tech progress. Kevin told us a while ago his programmer needed to finish
other assignments first, which apparantly takes more time than foreseen,
which on itself is business as usual in IT projects.
The questionaire asks how long respondent has been around and how active he
or she is. Probably more long term participants will be interested in taking
the time to answer the questions, but if enough people participate separate
results can be published for subgroups.
