Task Explosion

Ah, this must be the one I was looking for...

"15 tips for surviving a task explosion"

I see they accidentally missed the one that said "Blog about it before actually taking any action"...

[EDIT]

Got my results from the second semester of uni in Japan today.

1 x 90% - 100%
2 x 80% - 89%
1 x 70% - 79%

It's a shame that these results don't mean what they'd mean if they were awarded bu a British university. In Japan it seems just turning up to class is enough to get you at least 60%... and if you stay awake in class, a mark of 65% is yours! Pick up a pen and it rockets up to 70%; actually write something and 75% is what the Golden Star you receive represents...

Well, congratulations anyway ;)

From my experience, university here in the UK isn't necessarily any different; a large part of why I dropped out of my Computer Science BSc after 4 semesters was that I went there to learn (silly me), and help turn my hobby into more of a career; instead I spent most of my time waiting for them to catch up to my (rather basic) level, and doing all my actual learning in *spite* of the university.

So, don't be so quick to dismiss your results. Or be quicker about dismissing results from the UK ;)

For a geekier approach to dealing with lots of tasks, see Push Down Goal Stack in the first Wiki ever. Understanding of stacks and priority queues a bonus.
