Backlog

It's a golden word in the manufacturing sector - having a backlog of orders to be delivered is like money in the bank. No discussion of corporate financial health fails to mention the state of the backlog....

So to wander into the last day of 2008, with the global economy lying in tatters, with a backlog of about 30 hours of work for one client (30 hours is a decent month's billables for this particular client) - well, not too shabby a position to be in.

I have muchg to be thankful for. Now, back to work. See if I can knock 4 or 5 hours off the backlog today so I can bill them in December.....
