Scheduling programming time
Usually my Outlook calendar stays fairly empty, even though I'm actually spending that time programming. Does anyone schedule blocks of programming time in Outlook? So that people will be able to tell that you're "busy"? People tend to schedule meetings during a nice empty block of time... prime programming in-the-zone time.
always...and 1hr for lunch and everyday after 4 since i work from ?-4
hah. 2 hours for every lunchtime to stop people scheduling meetings that run right up to lunch and then invariably overrun ;-)
Yeah, when my schedule was in demand, I used to block off (optimistically, I'm afraid) 2 hours a day of coding time.

Our firm makes heavy use of outlook calendar and task list.
Yes -- I eventually got fed up of my 8am-4pm day ending in me being invited to meetings that involved people working a 10am-6pm day and who then expected me to work until 6pm.
