in reply to Hours of sleep I get on an average weeknight

Sleep? You mean sleep EXPR as described in PERLFUNC? I don't only use that at night, but whenever I want one of my programs to wait for a couple of seconds. But multiple hours? I somehow don't quite get that...

Anybody care to explain?

    As described on everything2.com (http://everything2.com/index.pl?node=sleep):
    A periodic suspension of consciousness. Usually refreshes, envigorates, and makes people less grumpy. An inconvenience that most hackers / coders would rather do without. Avoidance mechanisms normally involve large doses of stimulating substances such as caffeine.
