Hmmm, I dunno it consumes alot of energy to remain into 3-space for an extended period of time. The good news is that they are only expecting 150,000 people to attend the festival. Maybe we can find a parking spot.
Got to work late, sat down and am thinking about how to account for this. Being a dozy so & so I tend to fill in my timesheet early and put 8 hours for today, so do I do 8 hours today or 6 today and then 2 extra next week? or do I wait for the time when I have mucho work to do and just put in the time then and not claim over time? Trying to be honest about this! Opinions please, waste the time I owe or save it for the rush I can see coming (when I could accrue overtime)...
Our company policy is that if you earn comp time, or need to make up missed time, you have to do it (take the comp time or make up the missed time) before the end of the pay period.
If it were me, I'd simply work an extra hour for a couple of days, and record the time accurately (6 for today, and 9 for the next two days).

OK, Knowing the PM on this I will get it for doing that and then charging over time when it's applicable, I will also get it for doing the hours at a time when there is little to do. Damned if I do, Damned if I don't.
Bucking the trend here, timesheets are one of the many psychological tools to own you. One of the only potential use is for billing on gov't projects if you're working on more than one. Otherwise, s*** the man - you're salaried, right? (Though if you can accrue overtime in the classic sense, maybe not?) If salaried, put down 8 hours, no matter what you do.
The irony to that is, that's exactly what I've been told by management -- the system (and managers) can't handle less than or more than 8.
If you're hourly, who the frack cares? You're getting paid for the work you do when you do it.
The issue this project has is too many companies, we used to be able to do everything, now we have to outsource things. This was a case of small company being bought out by big company and not really understanding what we do (or did) and choosing to buy in stuff we used to make and letting the skills wither as 'it's cheaper to buy it' you now get to state we are in now, people should have signed off on a bit of large gadget. They didn't want to, before the figures were published for this year, now we have lost these widgets to somewhere in South America... and yes it's for a government project!
Well I have always used if the work gets done all is good. However the attitude of those higher up is if the work is not done in regular chunks someone is being lazy... (parent company does not do technology)
As someone who writes code for other people (now commercial, govt at a prior job); my bosses need a timesheet so they know how much to bill our customers.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
