Spiffy. Read about Polyphasic sleep, which would mean I'd have a 22 hour day. That would rock, if it worked. But it sounds dangerously unhealthy...

Man, what I'd do for more time. What I'd do with more time...

I woke up early (10 AM, for a saturday), and was up wandering around the apartment poking at the fridge when some part of my brain woke up and came to the conclusion that, hey, it might be nice to curl up in my blankets for a bit longer, because my feet were cold. So I did that, and somehow fell back asleep until 2 PM ^^;;;.

And... I've just realized that it's going to be a really inconvenient week to not have a laptop, if I do decide to send in the iBook. Because PuzzleCrack is this week! And as I do rely on perl and such to hack up little scripts... and being able to search on campus for clues while using wireless/meet with others to discuss things... garh.

And I still don't know where the problem is. There's no consistency in the blanking-out/failure to boot problem. I'm hazarding a loose wire somewhere, but shaking/lightly tapping the iBook hasn't caused the problem to surface. I don't think it's bad RAM? I've been running it without my 1GB stick, and thus far it hasn't died yet, which worries me. I _think_ I have a warrentee on that RAM, but... I don't remember anymore. But RAM shouldn't cause the screen to blink a half-second bar of white, then shutdown, should it? And then cause the system not to boot up properly for a while?

Bleh, this sucks. I want a MacBook Pro. Or just any Pro machine, something that doesn't keep dying on me. How much of a hassle is it to sell things on eBay?

...The analysis of a nationally representative sample of nearly 10,000 adults found that those between the ages of 32 and 49 who sleep less than seven hours a night are significantly more likely to be obese....

...Scientists have long known that sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea, narcolepsy and chronic insomnia, can lead to serious health problems, and that difficulty sleeping may be a red flag for a serious illness. But the first clues that otherwise healthy people who do not get enough sleep or who shift their sleep schedules because of work, family or lifestyle may be endangering their health emerged from large epidemiological studies that found people who slept the least appeared to be significantly more likely to die....

Hm, yeah. Damn time.
