in thread Coding to a deadline - why it is just like hunting bears.

I agree (shock horror) with almost all of the above. However I would like to clarify a bit to bring my analogy in line with your wisdom.

I will define mosquitoes as unneeded interuptions. For example: A co-worker phones to ask you to email him something for a meeting next week. This should not be a phone call which interupts you then and there, but rather an email - which you can deal with whilst in the email client.

Calls about the code are not mosquitoes - rather they are actions like cleaning your gun - tedious but essential.

I suppose I am trying to say that if most people, before disturbing, thought "Hmmm, what will the answer be and how will I get it? Should I ask the question in a different way?" it would be a good thing.

Not even slightly offended - you will have to try harder...

--tidiness is the memory loss of environmental mnemonics
