Hear hear.

Today's timesheet:

9am: 	Xen projectish stuff
10am:	crud (email etc)
noon:	sales
1pm:	lunch
2pm: 	miscellaneous small stuff
3pm:	interview potential new trainer
5pm: 	miscellaneous small stuff
6pm:	management meeting
8pm:	freshmeat, usenet, email, and random sysadmin
10pm:	nag techies to do docbook stylesheet patches, post to FSB

See any code there?  Feh.  4 hours in meetings.  And all that "misc"
stuff was things like fiddling with spreadsheets, setting up mailing
lists, and whatnot.  Actually, I did spend 15 minutes playing with
Megahal round lunchtime.  That was good.

When we get another ummmm 4 staff or so, I might get time to do some
stuff for myself.  But that's not until at least late March.
