Holding stuff in your head

Man, do I feel like this today; working on a new piece of software that tries to intelligently disambiguate company names in text using web scraping/spidering and natural language processing techniques - it's hard to hold it all in my brain at one time meaning that bits drop out of consciousness  (i.e. I lose sight of the detailed workings of them) Then I break the out-of-consciousness pieces whilst advancing other areas that are in working memory forcing me to re-acquire them; then the phone goes and some pointless cold-caller makes me lose the whole lot for a while... it's a funny old game software development.
