Hi,

Yes, I have done this at least two or three times.

The last time was five/six years ago. I was asked to build an enterprise POS system using .Net 2.0, VS 2005 and Sql Express 2005 which were still in beta. My only spec was a two page list of one-line comments that were must have features.

It is now a shipping product, and very cool... but I am still working on it. I probably could be for the rest of my life Wink | ;)

I agree it feels good when you get the momentum going. Of course, five or six years later you can't help but feel if you started again today you'd do everything differently, which is depressing. Less depressing that actually starting again though.
