I don't know if it counts, but I've had numerous floppy crashes with similarly devastating results... I don't know how many FD projects met a last-minute death due to those darn CRC errors :X
If I work in a problem for various days or at least about 8 hours in a unique day and the solution doesn't 'appear', the problem will be resolved in the last minutes of sleep. I already dreamed several times with Z80 code floating around.
In one of my last coding dreams, my brain create a strange situation. The comments was full of coloured hearts, flowers and stars, although I knew in that dream that the source file was a plain text one.
Was that a dream or 'K'nightmare?
Someone already dreamt with code that is indeed useful?
Sorry for I use a thread to "The big' MSX user", even so I have height 1,86m... Is it counts?
I don't think I've actually ever dreamt Z80 code... I've used Z80 code to try and fall asleep though!
best coding hours are the morning hours. starting at, oh, around 9 o'clock after some good coffee and saffies. I could go on and on and on back in the days... just coding the whole darn day and night.
that, ofcourse, are the days I was doin' some project. Like did ya know I coded every muzax episode in just one weekend (the first one including GFX!) yup, them days where darn productive!
and now.. well, u know. a j.o.b., a wife, thinking of kids and all that crap. bleh. wish I was young and had all the time in the word...
My programming skills are poor but I have tried sometimes to do a game with no great success. Normally I make these things at night, if am not sleepy, or by the mornings. Today at 3 a.m. I was making some gfx... a cool BAR-Honda F-1 Car, animation included
You do that one only once in your lifetime, D-Tail
Unless... you get an NMI from something... t00b's cat is very good at that, ask him
yeah i notice that at night/morning i am more productive!
but as were commented here, child/wife work overkill the skills.
"overkill the skills" nice name for a DEMO or music track. or better "overkilling the skills".
anyway yesterday i was awake since 2am up to 5:30am (the burst of yawning marked the time to go to bed).
