I proposed a paper to my team and the boss lapped it up and put me in charge of the dev team. I was never in charge before and I was kind of a bad boss. I couldn't delegate work so effectively and so I took it upon myself to sorta do everyone's work.
And this was right after marriage but I spent almost 2 months without hardly any sleep. I was sleeping about 5-8 hours a week. To make up for my bare-consciousness, I wrote a boatload of tests to catch our mistakes.
I have a sample log from that time period. Everyone thought I never slept but I did here and there. But in short bursts.
It took the biggest physical toll on me after we finally shipped though. I was getting cranky about everything going too slow. "Hurry the fuck up!" You know, that sort of thing.
We actually not only shipped our product but I won a Siggraph award. I got into a conflict with a user on here about the need for sleep and I don't disagree with him. But I got an award sitting in my room for pushing myself so hard, and he doesn't.
Actually, that was a most unfortunate incident. He was talking about my safety and making very good points. But I'm talking about being a man willing to fight and die for a cause and we're talking across each other.
Whoa you have great amount of patience! But yes you need to take care of your health too. And congratulations for your award! Seriously you are the most hard working person I ever knew
I'll disappoint you these days. I've become the ultimate slacker. :-D But if deadlines approach, I can still put on my best.
Yeah but at least you are working unlike most people.
