...and using dwarven small business accounting software.

Don't diss the bookkeepers man, they are the blood of the fortress!

I hope someone dorfs our new friend DavisBoN in time for the cavern exploration.  :D
 This forum is a must for people like him.  ;D
In fact, Andreus should dorf a whole bunch of Davises for cavern exploration there can be Davis1 and Davis2 and all the Davis family and they can all go down to live with zombie crundles and voracious cavern crawlers having dwarven breast augmentation (with lava) from masterful dwarven plastic surgeons (using lava!) and using dwarven small business accounting software.

You win 5 internets.

Sorry for the rather epic delay guys. I've been having some issues with my medication making me throw up and not sleep properly and also some seriously major shit's been going down in EVE Online so combined they've been sucking all my attention away from the all-important task of managing the little people. I'll try and get the next update out tonight and my turn completed sometime tomorrow. I need a full list of who I need to dorf though, 'cause a bunch of migrants just turned up.

If there's a (siege) engineer, I'll take him. "Urist the Red" please, custom profession "Siegebreaker."

If there's anyone with Record Keeper or Organizer skill, dorf me and set me as bookkeeper/manager combo, profession name "Bookmaster".

Why would you do that? Bookkeeping is best as a full-time job. The combo to go with for manager is arsenal dwarf, as far as I know.

So we got monsters above, monsters below, dwarves in the middle and a party in the dining hall. Sounds good to me.
If all else fails, remember one thing:  kittens are delicious, nutritious little goblin-baiters, cavern explorers, and ambush-finders.

As far as I've tested, it works (mostly because I've seen the bookkeeper lounging about for most of the time, even with stockpile precision set on maximum). Then again, any of administrative jobs will be ok, if you think joining them would be a bad idea.

Yeah, the bookkeeper is generally busy for two seasons, then nothing.

But if bookkeeping isn't finished, overlapping with manager can really slow down production orders.

Also, bookkeeping doesn't have to be "maintained" - once you're at maximum accuracy, it stays that way for the rest of the game.

True. But I noticed that when it's "in progress", the percentage sometimes seems to go down, so it's probably better to make it to the best accuracy as soon as possible.

Yeah, I think how long it takes to reach a level depends on how much crap you've got, so if you add a load of crap it can end up taking longer.

Which means that a wise overseer lets the bookkeeper do his job before the really massive digging operations begin. You know - counting all the rocks in the entire fortress is hard, but it's even harder when there's several entire z-levels worth of stone to count.

Well, of course, there are plenty of situations where you can't afford to wait, and the wisest move is to let the bookkeeper have a difficult time when there's some free time to be had. :D
Such as when you're stuck outside, surrounded by skelks. :P
