The problems of "already knowing about it"

[ #850 ]

So I prototyped, in Perl of course, over 4 weeks a complete reliable TCP/IP messaging system with specific characteristics suitable for our requirements (global private WAN carrying billions of dollars of trades per day) and modelled service lookup, error detection and correction, and a complete hub system - got grilled about the work by 5 head-honchos from the biggest potential users, and they report a couple of "key risks" of the prject as being

  • "Trust-me I’ve built one before" mentality
    Well, its better than a "trust me I've never done this before" mentality...
  • Implementing own reliable messaging may be more complex than anticipated
    Er... that must be why I built a fully working prototype of just that bit....

What do you do ?? Anyone would think I wasn't offering them a solution where they get twice the product for just 10% of the original cost....
