Hi Thomas,

I clock my 7.5 hour work day every day.  When I arrive at work I punch
in with f9-I which starts the clock on my default * Organization task
then I pick something from the agenda, clock it in and work.

In my setup clocking out moves the clock up one level in the tree or
back to the * Organization task.  This keeps time on projects and works
great for me.

I clock out at lunch (f9-O), clock back in after lunch (f9-I) and clock
out at the end of the day when my daily clock report on the agenda hits
7.5 hours.  I don't get paid for unauthorised overtime and I don't work
for free :)

I clock every minute of every day that I work minus lunch.  If personal
tasks interrupt work I clock those in with a new capture task and remove
these from my daily work report (C-u R in the agenda will show a clock
report using the current tag filter on the agenda).

All the gory details for my setup are here:
