OK - it's all done with.

Supposedly it's an all-hands potentially on deck get a certain super-senior-management's pet project done. Something that he's wanted done for well over a decade. I gave him a solution, once. They did, however, what they always do and hire contractors to not get it done. A series of them.

The meeting caller was hired a couple of years ago for precisely this project - nothing's worked out so far. From the verbiage used, there will be lots of information gathering about various business units and all (which has all been done before) and nothing will come of it (just as before) but it can be used as excuse for looking like something's happening.

I'm not sure if they'll mess with me/us as it's really rather critical that the stuff keeps working and expanding. The made a PoorPoint presentation but that's hard to see over the telephone.

And a warning that IT may be part of the next round of layoffs . . .
