I see some unwarranted assumptions there.

I may be doing one of these! I can probably get away with doing it at work and calling it research!

My hobby planning at the moment seems to consist of:

A Plan! Concentrate on the 54mm North West Frontier project and also paint Dungeon Scenery.

Play a game of Napoleonics using Piquet Field of Battle

Decide to reorganise my Napoleonics properly (at last) and rebase them all....

I'm playing Federation Commander tonight for the first time so I'll probably be painting spaceships tomorrow...

I think it was Ike who said the whilst he found that all plans were virtually useless, planning was absolutely indespensible.

Creative work is like that, it's either your first idea or your last idea that's the best one. If you have the conviction to go with your gut instinct then your first idea can also be your last idea – easy. But when the seeds of doubt are sown then there's lots of work to realise that you were right in the first place.

When I see spreadsheets or similar for project planning I'm always reminded of the episode of 'Red Dwarf' where Rimmer spends so much time doing his revision schedule for the Officer exam that he needs to do another one taking account of the time he has spent doing the first etc... etc...

Column 3 row 16.
We will be opening multiple dimensions so we can look at the cost benefits of multiple layers and filling, and of course, icing.

Reminds me of my missus. Not only does she do all that management speak stuff, but she also does lists… And lists of lists.

See, it's not just me and Dave then. Thats another one for the nipple electrode attachment. I'm looking forward to that, I shall have to knock up a chart detailing my eagerness to have my nipples attached to electrodes.
They will not force us,
They will stop degrading us,
They will not control us,
We shall be victorious.

My nipples come pre-clamped if that's any help?

I think the less we know of your organs and their clamping, the more it helps.

Ask me if I'd rather spend an hour debriding a necrotic perianal fistula or working on a spreadsheet.

That >smack< you heard immediately after the word 'spreadsheet' was me twanging the gloves on.

I concur, except that I'd probably be shouting something like 'Multiple homicide? Yeah, boyeeeeeeeeee!!!'

Spreadsheets are evil. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeevil, I tells ya.
