Re: we all know it will actually take 10 mins

"I really really hate that meme."

my major malfunction is that I am crap at estimating timescales for job completion. My general rule of thumb is however long I think it will take, double it, get my PA (aka the missus) to check the times, she usually doubles that, and then I just about get done with a seconds to spare....

I have gotta say I do work better when time is limited, and I believe Parkinson's Law comes into play a lot of the time...
