    1. re: punchards. If you are able to build 100 times a day, then I don’t think you are facing the kind of problems Cedric is trying to address. If your build only takes 5 minutes, then this discussion is less relevant (though definitely not irrelevant – little projects sometimes become big, and planning helps).When your build takes 30, 60, 120+ minutes, then you start to have to think about these things differently.
