What time do you sleep. . .if you ever do?

I dunno why but for some reason, I can stay up as late as I needed to finish repair or making my new models. It's an addiction I tell ya. On the other hand, I can't concentrate on reading programming books any longer than half an hour. I'll just fall asleep.

So, how late do you stay up to finish that model? let's hear it.

Well, up until 2 months ago I had what I would call a sleeping disorder. I never went to the doctor so I don't know what it was. For about 12-16 months I absolutely could not go to sleep until after 3 or 4 am. I would then wake up promptly at 7 and feel fine all day. I never got particulary tired or down, I just evidently didn't need any sleep.

I used this time that I was awake and the wife asleep to go to the workshop, do some programming, play video games, and pretty much just muck around until I got tired. It was very weird.

But I'm feeling MUCH better now

rcdude,

I sometimes stay up till 3-4 even 5am programming!!!! dont read the books, write the code.

My record is 10 days straight with no sleep during my degree finals, finished the last exam had 1 pint of beer and was well drunk!!!!! cheapest night out ever!

Went home slept for 8 hours and felt great. I can usually manage well on about 6 hours/day any less and I start to suffer. On the other hand I have also been known to sleep for 14 hours straight. I'm wierd

Doc

I have stayed up many nights working on models. I hate trying to sleep. I would rather fall asleep dead tired than go to bet at a set hour. Usually I will try to sleep for 15 minutes or so and if I have not fallen asleep I will find something more productive than hanging out on my bed to do. I also have two kids and a wife and the only time I have to myself is when they are all asleep.

I need to do something about my habits. I'm usually not going to bed untill 1:30am or so lately. I dont know why. I just stay up late. Then the next day I'm all tired and groggy...When I dont have to work I usually try to sleep till 10-11am and wake up feeling like a total bum

I felt asleep today at work. According to my boss, I was "dead asleep" when he wanted to play GTA2. He's really nice boss so he won't fire me. Besides, it's near 5PM already

Being retired, I sleep when I want. Go to bed at 2AM (later on weekends), get up at 10AM. Maybe a nap in the afternoon.

I always wake with the sun. 6 to 8 a night
will do. I don't stay up to finish models.
Too much of the rest of life is a rush and a
push. The last place I want a deadline is my
hobby!
