    Strangely my motivation is also approaching zero. The last 3 projects I have written code for have been either cancelled or delayed. The 2 before that made it to production but have never been used. Much of the stuff for the year/18 months before that is being redeveloped slowly,with less features and at (I think)higher costs by development teams in the US.
    Not sure why I'm still here really apart from the fact I really like a lot of people I work with and we seem to get payed above average(sure money doesn't matter but its hard to motivate myself enough to move to less money).

    If at all possible convince your manager to set some time aside to create tools.Working on stuff you personally initiate is a lot more satisfying and if it does nothing else you usually
    end up with something that make the rest of you project easier.

    Maybe we can meet up at YAPC::EU::2005 and trade demotivational stories :)
