Always take your lunch break. The moment you skip your lunch and start eating at your desk, you lose that hour break in the day and never get it back.

Try to come in early, but don't stay late. Everyone admires the guy that gets there early. Early really means, try to mirror your bosses schedule so that he always sees you there. If your boss works from 6am till 4pm, but you work from 10am till midnight; you may put in more hours, but the only ones that count are the ones he sees you.

Don't surf. You can do that when you've mastered your environment, or at home.

Depending on how much control you have on that project implementing test cases, you might want to pick the low-hanging fruit to boost your percent complete. Knocking out the simple test cases will also allow you to get an idea of how to work out your harness before tackling the bigger tests.

Merely bits of my opinion.

[ambrus]: I have to tolerate syntax highlighters when other people use them, but I don't use them myself. And sorry for the rant.
[GotToBTru]: I appreciate the ability to highlight matching brackets/ parentheses/ braces, both for my own code and the inconsistently indented code of others
[Corion]: I like editors that automatically highlight the matching parenthesis (like % in vi), but that's roughly the extent to which I like editor support ;)
[GotToBTru]: same here Corion.
[Corion]: I tried for a short time (well, 8 hours now) to get Perl::Tidy set up but then found that it doesn't support (new-style) signatures and then stopped again ;))
[GotToBTru]: changing the font color of the rest of the document just because I typed a single quote character is annoying
