The cool part, at least I can take comfort in the fact that I am not a CEO or Vice President or something.

I can just say, "Sorry, I am not done".  Of course, I keep saying..."I am done"

Actually, my one saving grace is this little technique that has really helped me out.

I keep a file called "CHANGELOG.txt" (notes) and whenever I need to keep track of notes or sql queries, code snippets, test user ids, file locations; I just paste them in there.  At any point I start forgetting stuff I can kind of go through this file.  Has been saving me during these nervous times.

Depends on the geek in question.

If you're too up, go down.

I am done.  I can't believe it, I was thinking another 5 hours.  But, I think I finished, at least for now.

Got lucky, the indian programmer added all kinds of useful widgets at the last minute that I could just drop into my code.
