shift or no shift?

Here is a good read for those in need-
http://www.vorshlag.com/tech_upshift.php

What is your take on down/up shifting?
I've always heard shifting adds more time then it's really worth but yet i still do it when i feel like i need it. The Miata has ZERO power at the bottom of 2nd (reminds me of the SVT!) so i usually play with the shifter if it's easy to shift in that particular corner/element. I'm sure this is all relative, but i'd like opinions.

To shift, or not to shift??
