  • My brain collapses into mush around 5am. It's mostly pointless my staying awake past 4

    We are indeed getting too old for all-nighters.

    • I too suffer from the same malady. Last night finally ended at 5:30am. The thing I find curious is that if a I go 'til 4:00 am sometime, between 4:10 and 4:30, I always get hit with a burst of creative enery which lasts for an hour or so.

      Go figure.

      The bio-rhythms of an old fart geek are one of the great unsolved mysteries.

      mitd - grey is my favourite colour, at least it appears to be.
      • Either you guys are weird or I am; I could never do all-nighters. Then again, I used to edit the weekly newspaper, so was *forced* to do all-nighters, so maybe I ended up with a serious psychological aversion to them or something.
      • I worked my ass off, including allnighters, for a startup in NZ. I got nothing for it, not even stock. At that point I realized what a waste of time it was to burn yourself up for your company. The only reason I'm breaking that rule now is because I work from home and between email and kids I just can't get focus during the daytime. When this #*&^ing book is over, I tell myself, I won't need the same kind of focus and can return to regular hours.

        You're smart not to do it, pudge.
