How do you deal with the "task switching" problem, or is it not an issue
for you? I know when I was working on two very different tasks
reghularly (each had 2 days a week of my time) I had a lot of trouble on
the first day of each task trying to remember where I was up to. I ended
up requesting that I do a fortnight long cycle (4 days on one task one
weke, 4 days on the other task the next week).
