Working on standards

People who haven't worked on standards often don't have a good understanding of exactly how slow and painful this can be at times. If this describes you, here's an excerpt from an email that I recently received that summarized the progress that was made one day on an hour-long conference call:

We have covered 171 of the 5,640 words in the document.  We are 3% complete, and there's 42 days left until our projected complete date.

That should give you a pretty good idea of what it can be like sometimes.
