More Accountability Buddies!
I have been working with Allie via Skype and it has been amazingly motivational.
It would be great to extend this so that there are more people involved, particularly at different times of the day, so there will always be someone available.
Our main strategy has been to work in 'real time' via Skype: we would announce a task or part of a task, go off for say 10 minutes to do it, come back and announce our success. It is surprising how good it feels to be working at the same time as a buddy and how satisfying it is to share in each others successes.
I am still in the process of setting up and this technique is helping me immensely and i foresee it similarly helping once I'm into maintaining the system.
If you would like to give this a go, send me a private message asking me more questions or to let me have your Skype nickname.
