I was at work last week before christmas and this week too...oh it is so quiet that you can get lots of work done - no emails, meetings, or major distractions...its great! I managed to finish up 80% of my TDS work and if I finish up the rest today/tomorrow, I can start to code some real tests.

TDS: A document testers write that describe what they are going to test, how they plan to approach it, test stretegies, risk analysis - basically the test plan for an area....
