    sleep? ...bah!

    I just got out of basic training... sleep is a luxury. Four hours is all they're required to give us, that's not four hours of sleep mind you, but four hours of lights out during which we are supposed to stay in bed and idealy sleep, but that isn't always the case. Then there's bivouacs where there's virtually no sleep at all.

    But then I guess that just prepared me for learning Linux....

    Sleep?

    I've noticed an interesting law of physics. Problematic Linux installations work at dawn, no matter when you start them. Not necessarily the FIRST dawn, mind you, but it IS dawn when they start working.

    Hence, if you aren't up to see the dawn, no don- erm, distro for you.

    Just a rambling, wishing I could drink some f'ing caffeine (f'ing medical condition), late-night observation.

    Not only does stuff not work until dawn, but you can't go to sleep and wake up at dawn...you have to actually stay up UNTIL dawn or the rule is false.

    Haha.

    Not touching the puter for 5 days? That's quite a feat...maybe even greater than 96+ hours w/o sleep.

    96 hours without sleep is insane. I can barely go 24 without crashing.

    Yeah.. 96 hrs without sleep is CRAZY. I mean, it's not healthy. You go insane if you keep going like that...

    I usually go to sleep at 1-3 am(weekends and holidays, around 11 at schooldays)
