We have been chugging along, "in the zone". Team forming and sustenance is such an important thing for every project (an organization in general), that iterating it multiple times doesn't hurt. The authors of Peopleware do an excellent job explaining this (I think this also has been repeated a zillion times).
One of the real administrative hickups is the financial setup. Setting up a bank account has been a nightmare. There are so many banks these days, but most of them don't keep up their word nor do they provide any kind of good customer service.
A pretty good list of house er.. office rules that seems to work can be seen in this coad letter. We should try out some of it here.
